Akshaya Navami Katha
There was a king, he vowed that he used to eat food only after donating one and a half hearts of gooseberry every day. Due to this his name came as Aonvalya Raja. One day his son daughter-in-law thought that the king donates so many gooseberries daily, thus one day the whole treasury will be empty. That is why the son told the king that he should stop donating like this. Hearing the son's words, the king felt very sad and the king left the queen's palace and sat down in the wilderness. The king and queen could not donate Amla and did not eat anything because of the vow. When it had been seven days of being hungry and thirsty, God thought that if I did not keep its vow and did not keep its truth, then the faith would be gone. That's why God built palaces, kingdoms, and gardens in the forest itself and planted many gooseberry trees.
When the king and queen woke up in the morning, she saw that twice the kingdom is settled in the forest than her kingdom. The king started saying to the queen, seeing the queen, she says, don't leave the truth. Surma leaves the truth and leaves it, Lakshmi will come again. Come, donate amla after taking a bath and eating food. The king and queen ate food by donating gooseberries and happily started living in the forest. On the other hand, the daughter-in-law's son's bad days came due to insulting Amla's deity and ill-treatment of his parents. The enemies snatched the state, became fascinated by grain, and came to his father's kingdom looking for work. His condition was so bad that his father hired him unrecognized. Son daughter-in-law cannot even think that their parents can be the owners of such a big state, so they also did not recognize their parents. One day the daughter-in-law, while weaving her hair, saw a wart on her back. She started crying thinking that my mother-in-law also had such a wart. We had stopped them from donating amla thinking that our money would be wasted.
Thinking of this, the daughter-in-law started crying and the tears started falling on the mother-in-law's back. The queen immediately turned around and asked, why are you crying? He told me that a wart-like your back was also on my mother-in-law's back. We had refused to donate amla to them, so they left the house and went somewhere. Then the queen recognized him. Asked the whole situation and told them his condition. Explained to his son and daughter-in-law that by donating, wealth does not decrease but increases. The sons and daughters-in-law also started living happily with the king and queen. Oh God, keep the truth of everyone as the king kept the queen's truth. Keep the happiness of the whole family while listening to this.
