28 THE KING WHO WOULD SEE PARADISE
was not content to wait patiently to see the Paradise of the faithful, had been judged already. And he turned and left the hall without a word, and went into the jungle, where he lived for twenty-five years a life of
prayer and meditation, until at last the Angel of Death came to him, and mercifully released him, purged and purified through his punishment.
(A Pathan story told to Major Campbell.)
