185. Tenalirama and the Thief
Tenalirama was on a journey, and a sadhu he met along the way asked to travel with him.
Tenalirama agreed, although he knew the man was not a saint; he was a thief who wanted to steal Tenalirama's money.
Every night, the thief would rummage through Tenalirama's bags and clothing, looking for the money, but he could never find where Tenalirama had hidden it.
When they reached their destination, he said, "I confess: I'm a thief, and you baffled me. Where did you hide your money?"
"I put it under your pillow," replied Tenalirama. "I knew you'd never look there."
