The Holy Man



Word had spread across the countryside about a wise Holy Man who had walked thousands of miles and who now lived in a small house atop the mountain. A curious man from the village decided to make the long and difficult journey to visit him. After he finally arrived at the house after a difficult trek, he saw an old man in rags inside who greeted him at the door. "I would like to see the wise Holy Man," he said to the man. The old man smiled and led him inside.

As they walked through the house, the man from the village looked eagerly around the house, anticipating his encounter with the great Holy Man. Before he knew it, he had been led to the back door and escorted outside. He stopped and turned to the servant, "You fool, I came to see the Holy Man!" "You already have," said the old man. "Everyone you may meet in life, even if they appear plain and insignificant... see each of them as a wise Holy Man. If you do this, then whatever problem you brought here today will be solved."
