One day Mara, who is the ancient Buddhist god of ignorance and evil, was travelling through the villages of India with his attendants. Along the way, he noticed a man doing a walking meditation. The man's face was lit up in wonder. Apparently, the man had just discovered something on the ground in front of him.
Mara's attendants, noticing the glow emanating from the man, asked
Mara what it was the man had discovered. Mara replied, "He has
discovered a piece of truth."
"But evil one!" exclaimed one of his entourage, "Doesn't this bother you when someone finds a piece of the truth?"
"No," said Mara. "I am not troubled in the least."
"But why not?"insisted his attendants. "Because..." replied Mara, chuckling...
"Right after they discover some truth, they usually make a belief out of it."
