Buddha describing Heaven to his disciples…

Here is a story about Buddha describing Heaven to his disciples…
One of the Buddha’s disciples went to him and asked to be shown Heaven.  The Buddha said, “If you want to see Heaven, you will have to see Hell first.”  The disciple agreed.  The Buddha took them to Hell, where an enormous banquet table was set up, piled high with fabulously delicious food.  Unfortunately, all the diners had, instead of hands, enormously long forks on the end of their wrists, and they kept trying to get the food into their mouths, but could not reach them.  They wailed and gnashed their teeth in misery. The Buddha then took his disciple to Heaven.  Heaven was exactly the same situation  – diners at the sumptuous banquet table, with long forks on their wrists instead of hands.  The only difference was that in Heaven, everybody was feeding each other.
