Most of the stories teach us that meritorious acts bring prosperity and evil acts, untold misery. According to Jain philosophy, man is the master of his own destiny. He reaps what he sows. No outside force can help him get what he does not deserve, nor can it prevent him from getting what he does deserve. And yet in this story, as in many others, we find supernatural elements playing an important role in the destinies of individuals.
The story of the Magic Grove has been taken from the Jain scripture VARDHAMANA-DESANA
