INSPIRATIONAL STORIES: “The holy man”

hermitage1Word spread across the countryside about the wise Holy Man who lived in a small house atop the mountain, as a hermit.

A man from the village decided to make the long and difficult journey to visit him. When he arrived at the house, he saw an old servant inside who greeted him at the door.

“I would like to see the wise Holy Man,” he said to the servant.
The servant smiled and led him inside.

As they walked through the house, the man from the village looked eagerly around the house, anticipating his encounter with the Holy Man.

Before he knew it, he had been led to the back door and escorted outside.

He stopped and turned to the servant:
“But I want to see the Holy Man!”

“You already have,” said the old man.

“Everyone you may meet in life, even if they appear plain and insignificant… see each of them as a wise Holy Man. If you do this, then whatever problem you brought here today will be solved.”

  1. True and we all r hermits and holy men only have forgotten ourselves in the world of illusion. A great read and such an incredible story, Amira. Why judge others when we r not perfect ourselves.
