The importance of faith

The importance of faith

Once a poor man wanted to cross a river in search for a job. But the boatman refused to carry him on the other side as he didn't have any money. Feeling sad he went to a nearby temple where a spiritual master was taking shelter. The poor man explained his difficulty to the master and requested him for help. The master took out something from his long matted hair and tied it in a corner of the poor man's wearing cloth, and said to him - "Don't be afraid. Have faith and walk on the water. But remember - the moment you lose faith you will be drowned." The poor man was very happy. He went straight to the river and started walking on the river water. He crossed more than half of the river and suddenly had an intense desire to see what is tied in his cloth. He opened it and found a leaf with name of the Lord written on it. A thought came into his mind - "What is this? Just the name of Lord!". The very moment he sank under the water and died.
