Once upon a time there was a mighty king ruling in Tibet, and he was loved by all the people and animals who lived in his country. Every year, he had a huge feast, he invited a lot of people and they came to eat from the delicious food with much rice and wine. While they were eating, lots of food fall on the ground and when the feats was over, all the food that was spilled was wiped on the ground also. When everyone was gone and the large plain was empty, the ants came. They collected the rice-corns and took them to there foodrooms, which were underground. A little time after a feast like that had taken place, a strange king came into Tibet, with a large army. The army stopped on the large plain to rest and to eat, exactly on the place the feast had taken place. There was no more water nor wood, so the soldiers couldn't cook their rice and couldn't make a fire to warm themselves. Then they saw the ants which were collecting the rice. One of the soldiers spoke the language of the ants and asked: "Tell us, how did you get all the rice?" The ants answered: "The king of this country had a big feast on this plain a few days ago. All the rice we're collecting right now, was spilled and we can live from it for a long time!" These words were told to the King of the other country. He said: " When the king of this country is rich enough to feed ants, who can think of how large his army is?" And all soldiers were told to pack their things and go home.
