|ONCE a rishi
was imparting to his student's spiritual knowledge.
When a lesson was over, students were free to ask questions on the days lesson.
One day the students asked: "Sir, who makes the mind desire?
Who makes the eyes to see, the ears hear and the tongue speak?"
The rishi said: "The One Great God causes all these
things. He is everywhere. He is the source of all things. He who understands this truth
But the students said they did not understand him. So the
rishi told them a story.
Once the Devas won a battle against the Asuras. The Devas,
however, did not realise that it was the Great God who made them win.
