Vow of Silence

Four monks made a pact: they would meditate in silence for seven days. During which time, no one was to say a single word.

Late at night on the first day, their one candle suddenly started to flicker…

“Oh no ! The candle is about to go out !” The first monk shouted.

The second monk looked at the first one and reprimanded him “Remember now, we’re not supposed to talk.”

The third monk said “Why do you guys keep talking ?”

Then the last monk laughed at them “Ha ! Ha ! I’m the only one who didn’t say anything !”


When pointing out other people’s faults, we often forget that we may be guilty of the same mistake.
