    One day a monk visited the village, and everybody went to the monk with food like rice, fruits etc., whatever they can contribute and get some advice of wisdom in return. Nasser also went there but seeing him, the crowd dispersed, and everybody went away. Seeing this, the monk smiled and called him near the tree where he was sitting. As Nasser approached, the monk asked him, ‘Why are you, sad young man?’ Nasser told his story of how he had been deserted by the people of the village. Listening to this story, the monk said, ‘Well, that’s alright, tell me what have you got for me today?’ Listening to this,Nasser felt embarrassed and raised his empty hand. The monk said, ‘I don’t need any expensive gift that you can’t afford, but you have to promise me that once given, you cannot claim that back’. Hearing this, Nasser was relieved yet surprised, wondering what he could give to this wise man. The monk said, ‘Give me your anger; from today, you will have no right on your anger once you give it to me. You can never be angry again.’ Nasser thought for a while and decided he must keep his promise, took blessings from the monk and left.
