Once in a village, Woman saw three old Men sitting outside her house. They were sitting there for quite a while.
Woman went outside and said,
I saw that you are sitting here for long, you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.
Is the man of the house at home ?
Woman replied, No.
Then we cannot come in.
Woman went inside. In the evening when her husband came, she told him about people sitting outside and all that had happened.
The husband told his wife to go and ask those Men to come in and have some food.
Woman went out and said,
My husband is home. He is inviting you all. Please come inside and have food.
We do not go inside a house together.
Woman questioned, Why ?
Then one of those old Men explained.
Pointing to one of his friends, he said :
His name is Wealth.
If he goes with you, your home will be filled with wealth always.
Then pointing to another old Man he said :
He is Success.
If he goes with you, you will always be successful in any endeavor you start.
He then introduced himself as Love.
If I go with you, then your home will be filled with love always.
Then he said,
Now you go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.
Woman went inside and told her husband about what the old Man said.
Her husband was overjoyed hearing about it and said,
Let’s invite Wealth.
Let him come and fill our home with wealth.
Wife disagreed and said, Why don’t we invite Success ?
Their daughter-in-law was listening to this.
She came to them and suggested,
Wouldn’t it be better if we invite Love in our home ?
Then our home will be filled with love forever.
Husband and wife agreed to this advice.
Woman again went out and said,
Which one of you is Love ? Please come in and be our guest.
Love got up and started walking toward the house. Just then the other two also got up and started following him.
You said that not all can come together.
I invited only Love.
Why are you all coming in ?
The old Men replied,
If you had invited Wealth or Success then the other two would have stayed outside, but since you invite Love, wherever he goes, we go with him.
Wherever there is Love, Wealth and Success will follow.
