Thread: source of the sound

  1. #1

    source of the sound

    A man is driving down the road and! breaks down near

    a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the

    door, and says, My car broke down. Do you think I

    could stay the night?

    the monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner,

    even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep,

    he hears a strange sound. The next morning, he asks

    the monks what the sound was, but they say, We

    can't tell you. You're not a monk.

    The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and

    goes about his merry way. Some years later, the same

    man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The

    monks again accept him, feed him, even fix his car.

    That night, he hears the same strange noise that he

    had heard years earlier.

    The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks

    reply, We can't tell you. You're not a monk.

    The man says, All right, all right. I'm dying to

    know. I f the only way I can find out what that sound

    was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?

    The monks reply, You must travel the earth and tell

    us how many blades of grass there are and the exact

    number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers,

    you will become a monk.


    The man sets about his task. Some forty-five years

    later, he returns and knocks on the door of the

    monastery. He says, I have traveled the earth and

    have found what you have asked for. There are

    145,236,284,232 blades of grass and

    231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.

    The monks reply, Congratulations. You are now a

    monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.

    The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the

    head monk says, The sound is right behind that


    The man reaches for the knob, but the door is

    locked. He says, Real funny. May I have the key?

    The monks give him the key, and he opens the door.

    Behind the wooden door is another door made of

    stone. The man demands the key to the stone door.

    The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to

    find a door made of ruby. He demands another key

    from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is

    another door, this one made of sapphire. So it went

    until the man had gone through doors of emerald,

    silver, topaz, and amethyst.

    Finally, the monks say, This is the last key to the

    last door.

    The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door,

    turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to

    find the source of that strange sound.

    .. . . . But I can't tell you what it is because

    You're not a monk.
