There lived a Sannyasi once, a holy man, sitting by the tree and teaching people. He drank milk, and ate only fruit, endlessly was doing pranayama and thought of himself as a saint. In the same village lived an angry woman. Everyday Sannyasi went to warn the woman that the magic that she was doing will bring her to hell. The poor woman couldn’t change her lifestyle because her magic was the only way for her existence. The picture of her future that Sannyasi painted had a big impression on her. She cried and prayed to God begging to forgive her, because she couldn’t help herself.
And then the saint and the witch died. Angels came and took her soul to heaven, and for
the soul of Sannyasi came the devils.
– Why is that? – He protested, – didn’t I live a life of a saint and preached the
impeccable ? Why are they taking me to hell and the evil witch has gone to heaven?
– Because, – the devils responded, – she was forced to commit improper deeds, but her
soul was always stretching to God, she prayed for forgiveness and now redemption came to her. And you did opposite, you committed only good deeds, but in your mind you were
always concentrated on evil coming from others. You saw only sin, thought only about sin,
so now you will go somewhere where there is only sin.
