One day, a guru foresaw in a vision what he would be in his next life. Then he called his favorite disciple and asked him, “What would you do to thank me for all you have received from me?” The disciple said he would do whatever his guru asked him to do. Having received this  , the guru said, “Then this is what I’d like you to do for me. I’ve just   that I’ll die very soon and I’m going to be reborn as a pig. Do you see that sow eating garbage there in the yard? I’m going to be the fourth piglet of its next litter. You’ll   me by a mark on my brow. After that sow gives birth, find the fourth piglet with a mark on its brow and, with one   of your knife, slaughter it. I’ll then be   from a pig’s life. Will you do this for me?”

The disciple felt sad to hear this, but he agreed to do as he was told. Soon after their  , the guru died and the sow did have a litter of four little pigs. Then the disciple   his knife and picked out the little pig with a mark on its brow. When he was about to cut its throat, the little pig suddenly  , “Stop!” Before the disciple could recover from the   of hearing the little pig speak in a human voice, it continued, “Don’t kill me. I want to live on as a pig. When I asked you to kill me, I didn’t know what a pig’s life would be  . It’s great! Just let me go.”
