A friend of mine and I were discussing about Zen-Buddhism stories. There was a story he shared, said he had read it at various places, many times, yet couldn’t understand the essence of it. I didn’t get it either when I read it. Later we went to different stories and topics and suddenly at the same time we pinged each other saying, I think I got it!. On sharing, we both realized we got the same understanding of it. 🙂
Let me share the story here and see what each of you who reads it, understands. Please do share you insights as it will add value to what I know. Do leave a comment. Thanks. 🙂
One day while walking through the wilderness a man stumbled upon a vicious tiger. He ran but soon came to the edge of a high cliff. Desperate to save himself, he climbed down a vine and dangled over the fatal precipice.
As he hung there, two mice appeared from a hole in the cliff and began gnawing on the vine.
Suddenly, he noticed on the vine a plump wild strawberry. He plucked it and popped it in his mouth. It was incredibly delicious!
