SPREAD THE MESSAGE : SHARE AFTER READING
A man asked Lord Buddha: What is the value of life?
Lord Buddha gave him a Stone & asked him, “Go & know about the value of the stone, but take care not to sell the stone.”
The man went to an Orange seller in the market and asked him about the value of the stone.
Looking at the bright Stone, Orange seller said, “You give it to me & I shall give you 12 oranges”
Further, nearby a vegetable seller saw the bright stone & said, “You can take a sack of potatoes, if you want to sell it to me”
Further in the market he went to a gold seller & showed it to him. Seeing it, Goldsmith said, ”You can take 5 million, if you want to sell it to me.”
When the man refused, Goldsmith said, “Give it to me in 20 million or tell me at what price you want to sell.”
Man said to Goldsmith, ”I cannot sell it as my guru has asked me not to sell it.”
Then he went to a Diamond jeweller & showed the stone.
On seeing the invaluable Ruby, diamond jeweller put it on a red cloth & then moved around the invaluable Ruby in prayer with folded hands.
Then the jeweller said, “This Ruby is invaluable. By selling the whole universe, the whole world, it cannot be bought, no one can put a price on it.
Value of Human Life by Lord Buddha: Explanation
After that the man came back to Lord Buddha & told all the story.
Now he asked Lord Buddha, “Now tell me, Lord, what is the value of human life?
Lord Buddha said, “You showed the stone to the Orange seller & he declared its price as “12 oranges”.
You showed the stone to the vegetable seller & he declared its price as “1 sack of potatoes”.
