When the sage first tried saving the scorpion, he was stung by it. When this happened several times, he was asked by a bystander why he continued to save the ungrateful being. To this, the sage said, “Poor thing he can’t help it, it’s his nature.”  But, then the bystander asked him, “Even when he’s biting you, why are you still saving the ungrateful scorpion?” The sage replied, “Because it is my nature,” narrates Dr Santoke.
