大师常用比喻或故事来启发弟子,他们听得津津有味。有时却感到不满,因他们渴望更深的真理。

大师对他们的不满,充耳不闻,仅提醒他们:「孩子们,你们还不了解:人类与真理间最短的距离就是故事。」

他又曾说过:「不要低估了故事的作用。俗语说得好:『一分钱的蜡烛可以找到一个遗失的金币』;一个简单的故事常会道出最深的真理。」

MYTHS

The Master gave his teaching in parables and stories which his disciples listened to
with pleasure — and occasional frustration, for they longed for something deeper.

The Master was unmoved. To all their objections he would say, “You have yet to
understand, my dears, that the shortest distance between a human being and Truth is a
story.”

Another time he said. “Do not despise the story. A lost gold coin is found by means of
a penny candle; the deepest truth is found by means of a simple story.”
