Elixir Stone and Iron Merchant

Saturday, 20 September 2014

Once there lived an iron merchant. He used to trade through import and export of raw iron and finished goods. On a lovely morning, a sage knocked at door of his house. The merchant happily welcomed him and provided him tasty delicacies to eat. The sage got impressed with such a courteous behaviour. While leaving, the sage said, "I am very happy with your courteous behaviour and respect you have shown to me. I want to give a souvenir in return. You can use it as you wish but I will come back after a month and will take back my souvenir." Saying this, he took out an elixir stone (generally believed to turn iron to gold) and handed over to the merchant.
