A king decided to find and honor the greatest person among his subjects. Before him was a man of wealth and proper, one who possessed incredible healing powers, one for his knowledge of the law, and another for his business instincts.
Many successful people were brought to the palace, and it became evident that the task of choosing the greatest would be difficult. Finally, the last candidate stood before the king. It was a woman with white hair, and her eyes shone with the light of knowledge, understanding, and love.
"Who is this?" asked the king. "What has she done?"
"You have seen and heard all the others," said the king’s aide. "This is their teacher." The people applauded as the king came down from his throne to honor her.
