Monk Story
Monk Story

A man was driving down a lonely road and breaks
down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and
says, My car broke down Do you think I could stay for the night?

The monks graciously accepts him, feed him dinner, and even fixes his
car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. The next
morning, he asks the monks what that sound was, but they refuse to tell
him the source of that sound. "Because You're not a monk", they say.

The man was disappointed but thanked them anyway and goes about his
merry way. Few years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same
monastery.

The monks again accept him, feed him, and even fixes his car.

That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had heard years
earlier.

The next morning, as can be expected, he asked what it was, but the
monks had the same reply - "We can't tell you. You're not a monk".

The man says, All right, all right. I'm dying to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound was, is to become a
monk, how do I become a monk?

The monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades
of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you correctly find these numbers, you will become a monk".

The man sets about his task. Some forty-five years later, he returns and
knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, I have travelled the earth
and have found what you have asked for. There are 645,236,284,232 blades of
grass and 931,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.


The monks all stand up and give him a round of
applause After chanting some
mantras he was congratulated. "You are now a
monk. We shall now show you

the way to the sound".


The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where
the head monk says, The sound is right behind that door.


The man reaches for the knob, but the door is
locked. A little bit annoyed
he says, "Yeah real funny. May I have the key?"

The monks give him the key, and he opens the door.


Behind the wooden door is another door made of
stone. The man demands the key to the stone door.


The monks give him the key, and he opens it,
only to find a door made of

ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who
provide it. Behind that

door is another door, this one made of sapphire.
Until So it went until
the
man had gone through doors of emerald,....





.......silver, topaz, and amethyst.



Finally, the monks say, This is the last key to
the last door.

The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the
door, turns the knob, and
behind that door he is amazed to find the source
of that strange sound.


. . . . But I can't tell you what it
was...because, you're not a monk!!!.
