The greatest person

Filed under: Education,Stories — Subbaraman Iyer @ 2:04 pm

In ancient times, a king decided to find and honor the greatest person among his subjects.a man of wealth and property was singled out. Another was praised for his healing powers; another for his wisdom and knowledge. Still another was lauded for his business acumen.  Many other successful people were brought back to the palace, and it became evident that the task of choosing the greatest would be difficult.

Finally the last candidate stood before the king. It was a woman. Her hair was white. Her eyes shone with the light of  knowledge, understanding and love.

“Who is this?” asked the king. “What has she done?”

“You have seen and heard all the others, ” said the king’s aide. “This is their teacher.”

The people applauded and the king came down from the throne to honour her.
