Will and Enlightenment
A wealthy man, while giving his son a will says, after my death, I want to wear these pair of torn socks. This is my last wish. I want you to please fulfill it.

As per Hindu rituals, after the death of a person, before cremation, the person is to be given a bath.

So, the son told the priest about this father’s last wish. The priest said, our religion doesn’t allow to wear a person anything after death while cremation.

But, the son was adamant to fulfill this father’s last wish. But, the priest was not ready. So, the argument reached such a level that all the priests of the city assembled. However, even they all couldn’t reach on a conclusion.

Will and Enlightenment:

While the argument was on, a person came with his father’s letter and handed that over to the son.
My Dear Son,

Do you see this? When I was alive, I had everything wealth, bungalow, vehicle, big factories, and farmhouses, but still, I cannot even take a pair of torn socks with me.

One day you will also die, remember the fact that you also will have to go all alone.

So, try not to hurt anyone for money. Make sure you do not earn money by harming anyone. I am not asking you to stop earning money or not to use it for your pleasure. Do use it, but make sure you do it without harming anyone. And, try investing a little money in the well being of mankind.

It’s very important for you to know that after you leave the body only KARMA will go with you. So, there is no point only running after wealth until you die.

Hence, I would like to give you the Will and Enlightenment both.
