Once upon a time, there was a king. He knew that it was going to rain in his kingdom the next day. The specialty of that rain is that anyone who gets wet in it becomes crazy. That means getting mentally ill.
But the king did not inform the people about this and when it rained the next day he and his party did not stay at the palace.
When the rain stopped, the king came to the palace to address his subjects. The assembled citizens started shouting “That madman … that madman”. The bewildered king told what really happened. Who said he was a real idiot.
What do you think? Did the citizens accept what the king said? No!!
They started shouting louder, “That’s crazy, that’s crazy.” The servants who were still with the king began to tell what had really happened. But it is said that pizza is never accepted as crazy. They kept shouting, “That’s crazy, that’s crazy.” The king and his men explained to them that it was useless.
“So sometimes it is very difficult for some people to show what is true. They do not like to be accepted. They think they are right. So does the fact that it happened to change? no. Most people have said and accepted that it is not true.”
That is why keep this parable in mind while associating with the Dhamma. Most may say … most may accept … but that does not mean it is true. If you research wisely and associate everything with an open mind, you will undoubtedly benefit!
