One day master Sant Thakar Singh met a traveler who had only three things: pair of sandals, piece of cloth wrapped around his body and a small pot for cooking and water. Pot didn’t have a top and traveler covered it with the edge of his clothing.
Master suggested that the traveler should get a proper cover for the pot so he would not have to cover it with the fabric. Traveler replied to that suggestion: „When I left the home, I decided to acquire nothing more what I already have with me. If today I cannot manage without the proper cover, tomorrow I might need a torch for a night, then maybe a walking stick already and so on and so on. My needs will grow in time and soon I´m back to my ordinary life which I left behind. By owning only those three things I can live happily and carefree.”
