A spiritual Leader lay quietly.
He was dying.
The disciples had gathered around his bed and recited some holy verses trying to make his last journey divine and pleasant.
They wanted to give him warm milk to drink but he declined.
One of the disciples took the glass back to the kitchen and decided to add some brandy considering it good for health.
He poured a generous amount into the warm milk.
Back at Spiritual Leader’s bed, they lifted his head gently and held the glass to his lips.
The very frail man drank a little, then a little more, and before they knew it, he had finished the whole glass down to the last drop.
As his eyes brightened, the disciples thought it would be a good opportunity to have one last talk with their Spiritual Leader.
Sir….! the disciples asked earnestly,
“Please, give us some of your wisdom before you leave us.”
He raised himself up very slowly in the bed on one elbow, looked at them and said,
“Don’t sell that cow”
