Once there lived a rich and powerful king in Asia who had a beautiful queen. They had all the comforts a king and queen could ask for, except one. They had no child of their own. This made the king and queen very sad. The king was particularly distressed, for he had no heir to his kingdom and it was difficult to say who would rule the kingdom after his death. One day, a famous priest from another country came to meet the king and queen. It was said that he had remedies for all problems in the world.
