three questions to ponder upon every morning

three questions to ponder upon every morning

A wise king came across a beggar on the street one day. The beggar, not knowing to whom he was speaking, stopped the king and asked him three questions: 

  1. Why are you here? 
  2. Where are you going? 
  3. Is there an important reason that you are going there?

The king looked at the beggar and asked him how much money he generally made on a given day. On hearing the honest answer given to him, the king said, “Please come and work for me. I will pay you ten times that amount if only you will ask me these three questions before I sit down for my meditation, early each and every morning.”
