Parable

“Eat the ball, King.” the holy person, preparing little balls by kneading leaves of an herb and eating them one after another in the deep forest, said. At night the king copulated with all the women in his harem. “Search the jungle, many women live there” he ordered the soldiers. “There’s no woman.” The king came to the sage “Take seven balls and eat. You may live for seven days.” The sage said. He returned home and ate the balls. But he couldn’t think of anything except the prophecy of the sage. Seven days elapsed. The king was alive.
