The wise people should speak less and quite beneficial, they should never
utter harsh words. Both the mother and the son one by one out of harsh
words became contemptible.

fect, I shall just burst your eyes I shall get you out you die away etc

adorned with a copper castle. He had a wife named Bandhula.
They had a daughter named Bandhuamati, Right from child hood she was fond
of wearing pompous clothes and gold ornaments, she was very dear to her
Her father said,"Daughter! do not wear exciting
dress. It is not proper for shrawaks like us. However she did not
discontinue to wear exciting dress.
Once a trader named
Bandhu dutt for trading purpose came from Bhrigukutch to Tamralipti. Some
day with celebration Bandhumati was married to him.
After marriage with a desire to earn more Bandhu dutt leaving Bandhumati
behind set out for Ratnadweepvia sea- route by boat.
After covering a little distance in the sea his boat baffled with rising
waves immediately broke down.
Then by luck he found a
piece of wood he sat on it and tried to cross the sea because of
convenient waves and wind he reached the sea share.
with frightened eyes began to see in all the directions he found the park
of his own city.
Oh! what a strange destiny! in which a
man gets ashamed. Now in this position how can I go
to my father in law ?
Thinking thus he remained in the
temple "By chance I have reached hence in this position.' such a news was
conveyed to his father in law.
On hearing such an
unpleasant news ",Oh! what happened ? he exclaimed and suddenly rose.
He got ready to receive his son in law but members of his family because
of night hours stopped him.
The master with proper dress
and ornaments set out in the early morning hours to meet his son in law.
Bandhumati also beautiful with gold bangles on her hands set out with her
father to meet her husband.
At that time some greedy
thief broke down both the hands of Bandhumati following her father because
the deeds done in the past life never go fruit less.
When the people made a bustle police party rushed there on seeing the
situation they ran after the thief.
The master came home
back. Many people expressed the sorrow saying ", Deeds never get escaped
without receiving their results.'
The thief at this
point on seeing the police party was afraid and took shelter in the same
temple where Bandhudatt was already there.
leaving all wealth behind near Bandhudatt ran away. Police saw the wealth
and decided that he must be the thief.
policemen hanged him whom do the deeds do not deceive ? All have to suffer
the results of the deeds.
Then regretting the master
came to Bandhudutt meanwhile Bandhudatt died.

done ? you killed my son in law!

On seeing his son in law and daughter facing the results of the deeds the
master got detached to the world liness and got absorbed in the religious
life and became Dharmasaar.
Someday into Tamralipti a
precepta named Sayasha having four types of knowledge including
mati etc came on hearing sermouns from him he asked about the prebirths of
his daughter and son in law.
