A dog Coming to Lawcourt to Denounce.

A dog came to law court to denounce. The judge was surprised. He asks the dog:
 

A dog Coming to Lawcourt to Denounce.

 

“Human can’t avoid injustice. So they go to court. You are a\r\ndog. Your life is very simple. Why do you go to law?”

\r\n\r\n

The dog discontentedly answered:

\r\n\r\n

“One day I am hungry. I come to Ly’s house for food. I beg\r\nfor a meal with norm of dog. It’s alright if he doesn’t give me food. But\r\nhe used stick to beat me. He violated my dog rights. I request you to judge\r\nhim.”

\r\n\r\n

 The judge couldn’t help laughing after\r\nlistening. “You beg for a meal from human but you talk about norm”, he said.

\r\n\r\n

 â€œWe beg for food at one’s door, two forelegs crossing\r\nthe door; two back leg are outside. I didn’t break rule! Why did he beat\r\nme? Anyhow, he must expiate his crime”, the dog answered.

\r\n\r\n

 The judge realized that dog’s speech is reasonable, he\r\nsaid: “Mr. Ly was wrong to beat you. But it’s first time I get lawsuit between\r\na dog and a human. So how should I convict Mr. Ly? I want to hear your\r\nopinion”.

\r\n\r\n

The dog jumped joyfully. “Please punished him to\r\nbecome the rich in the next life”, the dog said. “You not only don’t punish\r\nhim, but also be gentle with him”, the judge said.

\r\n\r\n

 The judge listened to explanation of the dog in\r\ncompassion. “Your excellence! Maybe you don’t know that I was the rich in\r\nprevious incarnation. But I weren’t merciful. I never gave alms and helped\r\npeople. I seem to be slave to my precious possessions. In present life, I am\r\nlet down to be a dog. Every day, I must eat remnants of food but I am bullied.\r\nTherefore you let Mr. Ly become the rich. So that his wisdom is covered with\r\nwealth. And at last, he’ll taste a life of a dog”, the dog said.

Comment:

\r\n\r\n

Although this is just a example. But it is an extra value of\r\nhuman’s life. Human shouldn’t get rich for selfness and being selfish. Being\r\nhuman, we have a mission that is to help and do good things.

\r\n\r\n

 For life, we don’t think that money will be able to\r\ncreate merit but money will be able to cause evil. Don’t think that having\r\nmoney can do good things, but having money can do bad things. So the rich\r\nshould love the country, the society, beings and do benefit for many people. We shouldn’t be\r\nthe rich without charity that, in next life, we will be punished to become\r\ndomestic animals. What a pity!
