Once, a town trader named Vardhmanaka was going to Mathura on his bullock truck. His two bullocks, Sanjeevaka and Nandaka, who had dependably served him loyally, were pulling the truck.
As they were strolling along the bank of stream the Yamuna, Sanjeevaka out of the blue ventured into a mucky territory and stalled out. He endeavored to escape the bog energetically. The dealer additionally attempted to get Sanjeevaka out of the bog, yet nothing worked. At last, Vardhmanaka was left with no decision yet to leave Sanjeevaka there and go on with his voyage.
Along these lines, Sanjeevaka was left there, stuck in the bog. He thought tragically, “I served my lord steadfastly for a mind-blowing duration and this is the manner by which he has treated me.”
Presently, there were just two choices for Sanjeevaka—either to attempt energetically to escape from the swamp or to surrender and bite the dust there. He thought, “It is said that God enables the individuals who to encourage themselves. I won’t surrender. I will attempt my best to escape this bog.” So, Sanjeevake utilized all of his quality and vitality to battle against the bog that was pulling him down, lastly he figured out how to receive in return.
Presently, Sanjeevaka had no place to go. He would not like to come back to his lord’s home after his lord had betrayed him so relentlessly. Thus, he began strolling along the banks of the waterway. He meandered about, eating crisp grass in the close-by woods and drinking water from the waterway. Before long, living in the indigenous habitat, he recaptured his quality and ended up more beneficial than any time in recent memory. He began crying like a lion. His cries seemed like thunder and could be gotten notification from miles away.
At some point, the ruler lion of the woods, Pingalaka, went to the waterway to drink water. There, he heard the thunder-like crying which terrified him so much that he kept running back to his give in on the double. His priests were two jackals, Damnaka and Kartaka. At the point when Damnaka saw that the ruler appeared to fear something, he went and got some information about it. “What is the issue, my ruler? Has something terrified you?” he inquired. “Let me know, and I will get it front of you without a moment’s delay.”

Before long, Damnaka conveyed Sanjeevaka to the court and stated, “This is the creature who has been making those unpleasant sounds, My Lord. He says that Lord Shiva has sent him to wander around in our woods.”
Ruler Pingalaka was satisfied to meet Sanjeevaka. Before long, they moved toward becoming companions and invested the vast majority of their energy visiting with one another.
Bit by bit, the lion began ending up increasingly profound. He began disregarding his kingdom and even quit chasing for his prey. This made Damnaka, Kartaka and his different subjects extremely stressed.
At that point, Damnaka concocted an arrangement. He went up to the ruler and stated, “My master, Sanjeevaka has insidious plans about your kingdom. He intends to murder you, assume control over your kingdom and turn into the ruler himself.”
Also, the following day, he went to Sanjeevaka and stated, “Ruler lion is no evident companion of yours. He has intended to execute you and disperse your tissue to the entire kingdom. You should slaughter him with your sharp horns previously he executes you.”
Sanjeevaka was extremely enraged on hearing this. He went to the lord’s court and began roaring in a roaring tone. The lion, who had just been deceived by Damaka as to Sanjeevaka’s aims, was himself exceptionally incensed. Like a glimmer, the lion jumped on Sanjeevaka with an uproarious thunder.
Both, Pingalaka and Sanjeevaka, were solid. They had a frightful battle toward the finish of which, Pingalaka slaughtered Sanjeevaka with his sharp paws and ate his tissue.
In spite of the fact that he had slaughtered Sanjeevaka, Pingalaka felt tragic about it. Sanjeevaka had been is companion. However, since Damnaka had persuaded him that Sanjeevaka was a swindler, he had no real option except to execute him. Damnaka was later made the main clergyman of the kingdom.
The lesson of the story is that one ought to never get to know a characteristic foe.
