Once upon a time, there was a renowned saint. Many people used to visit him to get his blessings.
Once a rich and greedy merchant went to him and offered him a bag full of gold coins. The saint refused to accept the offerings and said, "I don't accept money from people who are very poor."
The merchant said, "But I'm very rich"
"Don't you wish to earn more money?" asked the saint.
"Yes, said the merchant.
"Those who wish for money always run after it. They can do anything to acquire it. No one is as poor as these people" said the saint.
The merchant felt ashamed and went back to his home.
