A boy once visited a temple where God offered him some words of wisdom. After listening to what God said, the boy said to God that he had not even heard what God said and so he did not understand the words. But as God turned and asked the boy who brought him there, the boy was surprised when he found out that it was he himself who had come there. He told God that he had come there to spend his last money to pay God so that he could pray to God properly.
Tod said that as he could read the boy's heart so well, he just had to ask him what his last money was that he had to pay. Tod told the boy to take a pebble and put it in his mouth as it was too hard and too big to be swallowed and after that, the boy was asked to throw the pebble on the floor.
God asked the boy to count the number of pebbles that fell on the floor, and he counted about three hundred and seventy-two pebbles. He then asked the boy to get out of the temple.
The boy had lost his sense of pride and did not want to go back to his family in shame, so he decided to go on his way. He met with an accident after that and he lost his memory.
After some days, he realized what had happened and he wanted to seek out the God he had met. So, he went to town and went to the same temple. He knocked at the temple door and was surprised to see that the door was open.
He entered the temple and prayed to God to help him get back his memory. God revealed himself to him that he had given him the knowledge that the boy could never forget. He told the boy that he had taken his knowledge to the boy and he wanted him to use it to educate people in the society.
The boy took his knowledge back to his hometown, spread the knowledge, and today, he has his own school which teaches young people.
