It happened once.
There was a beggar who lived in terrible poverty.
He just sat under a tree and begged. People threw
a few coins, and he just lived on. One day he died
and his body was just lying there. He had no friends
or relatives, and nobody wanted to carry him somewhere
and bury him. So they decided to just bury him right
there under the tree. As people began digging, they
hit upon a huge treasure. Just a few feet beneath him
there had been a huge treasure, a huge pot full of gold,
and the fool was sitting right there all his life, begging.
If only he had dug down, he would have been a very rich man.
But he sat there all the time being a beggar.
