One grain of rice will increase the life of Emperor Taizong by 20 years!


During the Tang Dynasty, Li Shimin had two capable people, one was Yuan Tiangang and the other was Li Chunfeng. Both of them were proficient in the "Book of Changes", and they were both masters and clever calculations. One day, the two chatted with Li Shimin. They claimed to know everything about the past and the future. Li Shimin was also on a whim, and said to the two of them: "Then how much do you have to calculate the life of a widow?" Both said that they were afraid to calculate. Li Shimin said, "It doesn't get in the way. You speak boldly.
So the two each counted for Li Shimin.
Li Shimin asked: "What is the result?"
The two looked at each other without speaking.
Li Shimin said: "Don't have any worries. No matter what the result is, you must speak up. The widow will definitely not blame you."
The two heard that the emperor said that they would not blame them, so they said together: "The results of our two calculations are the same. The emperor will return to heaven at his son tonight."
Li Shimin laughed after hearing this, and said, "The two Aiqings must have miscalculated this time. Do you think my spirit is like a dying person?"
Both said: "It's really not like."
That night, Yuan Tiangang and Li Chunfeng worked together in private. If the emperor does not die tonight, then tomorrow they will definitely be investigated for their deceitfulness. The more they thought about it, the more they became more hopeless, they finally decided to escape overnight.
They each rode a donkey and ran hurriedly all night. Early the next morning, they ran to a three-way intersection. I saw a tree growing on the road in the middle, and the trunk separated like two arms extended by a person. At this moment, an old man with crutches came across. The two stopped the donkey and wanted to take a break. It was really "three sentences are not leaving the line." Yuan Tiangang said to Li Chunfeng: "Brother Dao, let's calculate whether this old man will come from the left of the tree or from the right, okay? "
Li Chunfeng said: "Brother Dao, I have calculated that he must come from the left."
Yuan Tiangang said: "No, Brother Dao! How can I figure out that he is coming from the right?"
The two were arguing endlessly, but they saw the old man with crutches walk under the tree, put the crutches on the tree, and jumped from the middle of the branches. The two were very surprised and immediately stopped arguing. They wanted to know how the old man would want to jump from the tree, so they came to the old man and asked him for advice.
The old man smiled and asked, "Why do you two living gods come here?"
The two were even more surprised, and they told Li Shimin's fortune-telling truthfully.
The old man said: "This is not a problem, you go back!"
asked quickly: "Then do you know how the emperor is now?"
"Safe and sound."
They panicked now, and said: "Then we won't even dare to go back."
The old man said: "After you go back, if the emperor asks about you, you will say: "Last night, your Majesty suddenly felt upset and wanted to drink a bowl of millet soup. He accidentally dropped a grain of millet on his boots while drinking. Your Majesty stretched out his hand and picked up this grain of millet. Because of this grain of rice, God was touched. The Jade Emperor praised you for being an emperor, but you can cherish a grain of millet. How can you not cherish your own people? Increase the life of your majesty by twenty years.'"
The two listened to this old man's speech, admiring the old man and admiring the old man, saying: "You are the living god! We compare with you, just like the water in Xiaohegou is compared with the sea."
The old man waved his hand again and again and said, "Don't compare it like that. What I learned is just a bottle taken out of the sea, not too full."
Yuan Tiangang and Li Chunfeng listened to them, ashamed, they said to the old man: "You are always dissatisfied with a bottle, we are half a bottle!"
