There came a time when the peasant could no longer work among his trees, for he was very, very old. One day his three sons gathered in his room to hear the reading of the will. `` l leave to my sons my garden and the treasurew which lies buried there. The three sons looked at one another. ``Treasure!`` they exclaimed. ``Treasure buried in the garden! If we hire others to dig there, they may steal our treasure from us. We must work in the garden until we find it.``So the sons divided the garden into theree parts and began to work harder than every before. They dug from one end of the garden to the other end, but they could not find the treasure. That year, however, the fruit trees brought so much fruit, that when the three sons sold the fruit they got much money. It seemed to be a fortune. When they divided the money , one of them said, ``lndeed, our digging has brought us a treasure. Our father was very wise.``And, so each year their digging broght them a treasure.

One teacher had two disciples. One of them had an auspicious positive vision and he always sought out good points from anything he observed while the other one had an inauspicious vision and always found out some negative or faults from his observations.
One day, the teacher went out to a park with both the disciples. They came across a mango tree from which some ripe and juicy mangoes were hanging. Then, he asked the first one, “My dear child, what do you think of this mango tree?”
The disciple answered instantly, “Teacher, in spite of people hitting this tree with stones, it gives us sweet and juicy mangoes. It feels hurt but still it gives us truits. I wish all human beings learn this important message from the mango treeto share their belongings even if they have to suffer for this.”
After that, the teacher asked the same question to the other disciple.
