In ancient Rome, if you broke the law or you opposed
the government, you would be thrown inside a lions’ cage.
It was recorded in the Bible that a man called Daniel
was thrown into a lions’ cage by the king. It turned out
that the lions, though very hungry, did not eat him.
So he became very famous. The king respected him very
much and was initiated by him to practice spiritually!
There was another story that happened about the
same time. A person who opposed the government
was thrown into a lions’ cage. However, whenever a
lion went near him, it left him in a few seconds and
went to a spot far away, with its mouth watering,
making a slurping sound. Even though its mouth was
watering, it did not dare eat him. The first lion,
the second, to the sixth one, all did the same thing.
They all approached him but left after a few seconds!
They dept a distance from him, where they stared at him,
with their mouth watering and their tongues hanging out,
but none of them dared to eat him.
The king was also very surprised to see that no lion
would eat him. Eventually the king let him out and
asked him, "What is your secret that the lions would
not dare eat you? Who are you?"
He replied, "I am no one special!"
"Why was it that whenever the lions approached you,
they left and stayed away from you, but with their mouths
watering? What actually happened?"
He said, "Ah! It was nothing really! Whenever they came
near, I secretly said in their ears, ’My eldest son is the
manager of an animal protection organization.’
Then they left me."
