Guru Rajneesh Rishi says that Most of the Pproblems which we face in the life are caused due to the displeasure of Lord Shani Dev. This short story explains the need to keep Lord Shani Dev pleased.
There was a small village where a poor Brahmin with his family was livining, He had three daughters-in-law. On the first Saturday of the month, Brahmin told to his youngest daughter-in-law that today is Saturday, go upstairs, take some food grains and grind them to prepare the roties and vegetables. She went upstairs but she found that there were not enough grains to prepare rotis. She prepared the food with whatever grains she had and waited for her father-in-law.
After a very short time, Lord Shani Dev appeared in front of the lady in the form of a leper and asked the lady that his entire body is aching, so please apply oil and bathe him with hot water and thereafter give him some food to eat. The lady applied oil and bathed him with hot water, after that she gave him the food and thus satisfied him. When leper was leaving, he blessed her that she will never fell short of anything in her life. After some time her father-in-law came home and saw an excellent preparation of food and happily wondered as to how this happened when there was very little in the home.
On the next Saturday, the Brahmin told the second daughter-in-law to be at home and left for the farm. As like first time, again Lord Shani Dev appeared in the guise of a leper and requested to the second daughter-in-law to bathe and to serve the some food, but this young lady told him that there was nothing in the house to offer him. Lord Shani Dev became angry with her cursed her that whatever you have will vanish. The lady went up and found that there was nothing in the pots. The father-in-law came back home and she informed him that there is nothing for the dinner.
On the third Saturday, the Brahmin told the third daughter-in-law to manage the home and prepare food. As usual, again Lord Shani Dev appeared in disguise and requested the young lady to serve, but the lady as the second daughter-in-law replied with a negative approach. The result was the same as second daughter-in-law. The lady was very sad for the incident.
Again on the fourth Saturday, the Brahmin had given responsibility of house to the youngest daughter-in-law. As usual Lord Shani Dev again reached there and requested to serve him. The lady heartily bathed him and gave the food to his satisfaction. Shani dev became happy and blessed her that all her desires would be fulfilled and she will remain happy in her whole life.
She cooked a luxurious dinner for the whole family. The Brahmin families were happy to have the food and asked her that from where she got all this. The lady told them the story of the leper.
Suddenly the Brahmin found a bundle of Patravali (A leaf in which the food was served). He opened the bundle and found diamonds and pearls in it. He enquired of other daughter-in-law about the leper, they informed that the leper had come to them twice but they did not give him anything. The leper got angry and after that everything vanished from house. The Brahmin offered prayers to Lord Shani Dev and asked for mercy and blessings for his family. . . .
