I want to be your disciple, Master. A young man came to Master’s mountain abode and genuflected in front of the Master.
And the reason! Master posed sportingly.
I want to get enlightened, I want to learn about life, I want to change the world, I want to know.
And you think that you will achieve all these if I take you as a disciple!
I believe so Master.
Can a blind lead another blind. Master asked.
I don’t understand your question Master.
I am not enlightened myself, I haven’t learnt anything about life yet, I have not changed the world and I don’t have the desire to do so either and I certainly don’t know. So how can you learn these things from me. I am as blind as you are my friend and one blind cannot lead the other.
We all understood that Master was testing the young man’s resolve.
Perhaps you are blind, Master, but two blind is better than one.
Master chuckled pleased with his answer and accepted him into his tutelage.
