ASOKA AS A BROTHER

On the next day, the genii attended the royal banquet with his friends and relatives numbering thousands and enjoyed the party to the utmost. The lavish supply of the choicest; delicious dishes, and bountiful and ungrumbled serving of the superfine drinks made the genii express on its own behalf and other invited thankfulness to the host for extending such a unique honour. Asoka accepted it and at the same time requested the genii to pile up all the large and heavy stones and slabs brought by them with provision for a chamber at the base. The royal request was obeyed with great rejoicing. Soon a great mountain was raised in the capital with a chamber of unusual dimensions at the bottom as requested by Asoka.

And thus came into existence the huge stone mountain found in Pataliputra even today. It accommodated Vitasoka comfortably and enabled the ideal brothers to carry on their avowed duty more effectively than before. It also bears testimony to the superhuman powers of Asoka, the royal monk of undying fame. Is not the word 'Impossibility' deleted form the life of godmen?
