Stories with a lesson: The story of “The wise Woman’s stone”

The Wise Woman’s Stone 

“A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.
The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food.
~~
The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him.
She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.
~~
“I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious.

Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me something more precious.

Give me what you have within you that
enabled you to give me the stone.”

  2. Profound and inspiring story, Amira. The wise woman had no care for the stone she was already realized. The boy was so surprised by this act of hers but people who walk on the road to realization do not bother about anything. Lovely picture too.
