The Rich Man and the Poor Man and the Rain

From a Rammurti Baiji satsang ~

One day a rich man and and poor man were walking when it started to rain.

The rich man opened his umbrella so he could stay dry.

The poor man had no umbrella and got wet, but he had a smile on his face. He actually started to dance in the rain, having a joyful time of it.

The rich man thought, "That looks like fun" and started to close his umbrella to have some fun with him.

But he stopped himself. "I'm carrying a laptop, and it might get wet."

Then he thought, "My clothes are expensive, and so are my shoes. I don't want them to get ruined by the rain."

While the other man enjoyed the rain, the rich man thought, "Who is truly richer?!"
