Ranti Deva was a Great King. He gave up his kingdom. He lived in a forest as a hermit. Once Ranti Deva fasted for forty-eight days. On the forty-ninth day he cooked a little rice for his meal. He was about to take his meal.
A hungry man
came to him. "I am hungry," he said, "Give me something to eat." Ranti Deva gladly gave him some rice. He ate it and went away. Once more Ranti Deva started to eat. Two more hungry men came and begged for food. Ranti Deva gave them also rice. They ate it.
