142. Kubera and Ganesha

Kubera invited Shiva to a feast.
"It will be the best feast ever!" he boasted.
To teach Kubera a lesson, Shiva sent his son Ganesha in his place.
Ganesha ate everything, and then asked, "Is there more?"
Kubera brought food from the kitchen.
Not enough.
From the pantry.
Not enough.
"Why isn't there more?"
Finally, Kubera went to Shiva and begged for help.
"Food served with love is truly filling," said Shiva.
So Kubera brought Ganesha a handful of rice. "I offer you this food with my whole heart," said Kubera.
Ganesha took the rice. "I am satisfied," he said.
