Lord Buddha - buddhist story

       Once in Savatthi,there were five friends who became Bhikkhu at old age.These five Bhikkhus were in the habit of going together to their old homes for almfood.One lady who was former wife of Bhikkhu was a good cook and she looked after them well.Thus ,the five bhikkhu went mostly to her house.But one day she fell ill and died suddenly.The old bhikkhus felt their loss very deeply and they together cried praising her virtues and lamenting their loss.
      The Buddha admonished them,"Bhikkhus! you are all feeling pain and sorrow because you are not free of greed,hatred and ignorance which are like great forest.Cut down this forest and you will be freed from these mental impurities."
