Teaching Story - The culprit
by Life Positive
One day, while the two were coming to the village from the city, Naga, as he was called, picked a fight with a horse cart driver. The fight reached flashpoint and Naga, unable to contain himself any longer, slapped the horse cart driver. The driver fell down. Poornananda, who happened to witness the incident, came to the horse cart driver's rescue.
“What have you done, Naga? Is this what I taught you?” Feeling ashamed of himself, Naga fell at his guru’s feet and begged forgiveness. Krishna, who was watching all this, could barely suppress his glee.
“What a bully Nagendra is. It's good that you came along, guruji. I am embarrassed to call him my friend,” he said sanctimoniously.
Poornanada's face turned red. “It is true that Naga lost control over his temper and attacked the driver. But you, who can rejoice over his wrongdoing and put him down, are even worse because you have malice in your heart.”
It was Krishna’s turn to hang his head in shame.
Takeaway: Instead of looking at the faults of others, it is better to look at our own faults and see how we can change.
