As related to me by my son last 8 September 2013.
The chief monk had a pet cat. It was a very beautiful cat that other monks loved it very much. When the chief monk died, the cat also died days after. The new chief monk wanted to have a pet also. He went to the village to ask for a pet, but nobody gave him one. So, he went into the forest to look. While wondering in the middle of the forest, he saw a tiger. The monk prayed that finally he will have a pet. The tiger also prayed when he saw the monk. The monk was so amazed with the tiger and asked, “what did you pray Mr. Tiger?” The tiger replied, “grace before meal”.
Moral of the story: Always pray before meals.
