The Unselfish Brother


The elder brother mounted on to the bird’s back and the bird flew to the Island of the Sun. And as it landed, the sun set behind the Island. The elder brother looked around and saw shining gold everywhere. He picked up one piece and placed it in the basket. Then, he thought, ‘The basket seems empty. I must take another piece.’

He picked up a second piece and placed it in the basket, then a third. He continued picking chunks of gold until his basket was completely full. Then he turned. He was shocked to see that the bird had flown away and the sun was rising. He stood there and the heat burned him. The young brother inherited his elder brother’s land and tended it with love. As he was not selfish, whatever he produced on the land, he shared it with other people who were in need.
