Begging from Beggars

A fakir went to Akbar and he was told that Akbar was at his prayers to God and so could not give audience for some time. He was asked to wait in the ante-room. But, he refused to wait, he said: "What can this beggar get from that beggar?" All are beggars at the gate of God. The hero is he who does not beg or cringe or flatter or fawn. He knows that the Lord knows best. If it is His Will He will grant food and raiments; if not, well, let His Will prevail.
