Shri Nathji once asked an advocate who came to see him:
If some client tells you he has been struck on his head with a stone, can you file a court case on his behalf?
Yes, said the advocate, ‘because his head has received an injury.
Shri Nathji then said to the advocate:
May I ask you how many times your own head has given you a headache? Have you ever thought of filing a court case against your own head?
While we complain of the hurt caused to us by others, we seldom complain of the pain our own body causes us through sickness, disease, old age, and finally death.
