The Man and his Wife.
Once upon a time, there was a husband and wife, and as normal they were verbally sparring. The husband was used to it, and as his wife verbally took him apart. I think they call it mental cruelty these days. He calmly ate his meal and read the daily news. Then the talk changed.
She said, "Do you know? My brother is going to join the Buddha. He is going to become a monk."
"Oh!", said the husband, "And when is he going to do that?"
"Next week." said the wife.
The husband replied;
"Your brother is all talk. He will never do that. If you really know something. If you really know that your daily life has no meaning and that the only way to evolve is to meditate, you could not hesitate like this. Your brother would lay down his clothes now, and walk off to the Sacred Grove, where the Buddha is giving initiation. This very moment."
"Oh!", said the wife, "and I suppose you are different, you idiot!"
The man said, "Youíre right!".
And taking off his clothes, he walked naked into the street and down the road.
The wife ran after him. "Stop!", she cried, "Where do you think youíre going, cretin!"
And the man replied, "Iím off to take Initiation from the Buddha, right now. Iím going to leave this life. Iím going to become a monk."
