"What paradise and hell is !" - in Desirable Pearls - 29

in life •  3 months ago

In my "Desirable Pearls" I present, stories that have been heard, read or noticed in my life and have made a great impression on me. In every Wednesday's post I want to share with you the stories that change me.

The message of each story is different, but all have one goal.

Goodness, wisdom and patience will overcome foolishness, greediness and self-righteousness.

Once upon a time,

a great, non-intelligent samurai, he came to a small but renowned monk.

Monk, he asked, teach me what hell and paradise is!

The monk lifted his eyes to look at the mighty warrior and replied contemptuously:

Should I teach you what hell and paradise are? I could not teach you anything. You're dirty and you smell, and your razor has long been rusty. You are a shame, a slap for the samurai caste.

Get out of my sight, I hate you!

Samurai became furious. He began to shake with anger, his face turned red, he could not say a word. He drew his sword and lifted it up to kill the monk.

This is hell, "whispered the monk.

The samurai was oppressed. How much compassion and devotion was there in this man who offered his own life to teach him what hell is. He slowly dropped his sword. He felt gratitude and great peace.

"And this is paradise," the monk whispered.
