The key to Heaven.

The key to Heaven : A Raman Story


The villagers were delighted. A sage who performed miracles had come to their village.

Every morning and evening they would gather at the temple with specially prepared delicacies as offerings to the sage.

When Tenali Raman heard of this, he smelt a rat. He went to the temple and sat near the holy man.

The sage began reciting shlokas. To Raman’s surprise, he went on repeating the same shloka over and over again.

Raman realized that he was a fraud. Suddenly, he leaned forward and plucked a strand of hair from the sage’s beard.

“I have the key to the Heaven!” he shouted triumphantly.

The villagers looked startled.

“This sage is so great that if I keep the hair from his beard with me, I will be blessed forever!” said Raman.

Immediately there was a scramble as the villagers rushed to get hold of a hair from the sage’s beard.

The frightened sage ran for his life and was never heard of again.
