There was a millionaire who was bothered by severe eye pain. He consulted so
many physicians and was getting his treatment done. He did not stop
consulting galaxy of medical experts; he consumed heavy loads of drugs and
underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted with great vigour than before. At last a monk who has
supposed to be an expert in treating such patients was called for by
the millionaire. The monk understood his problem and said that for
sometime he should concentrate only on green colours and not to fall his
eyes on any other colours. The millionaire got together a group of painters and purchased
barrels of green color and directed that every object his eye was likely to fall
to be painted in green colour just as the monk had
When the monk came to visit him after few days, the
millionaire’ s servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him
since he was in red dress, lest their master not see any other colour and
his eye ache would come back.
Hearing this monk laughed said “If only you had purchased a pair of green
spectacles, worth just a few rupees, you could have saved these walls
and trees and pots and all other articles and also could have saved a large
share of his fortune.
You cannot paint the world green. Let us change our vision and the world
will appear accordingly……..
