Chess Players:

Chess players – A young man said to the monk of a monastery, I want to become a monk but one problem is that I do not know anything about only one thing and that is chess but there is no freedom from chess and one other thing that I know It is that the means of all kinds of pleasures are sins. Apart from these two things, I don’t have much knowledge.

On this, the Mahant said to the young man, “Yes, they are sins, but the mind also flows from them and do you know that the monastery will get any benefit from them too. The Mahant laid a chess board and asked the young man to play a chess game. All the games were about to begin, the mahant said to the young man, “Look, we will play a game of chess and if I lose, I will leave this monastery forever and you will take my place.” The young man saw that the mahant was really serious, so for the young man, it had become a matter of life and death because he wanted to stay in the monastery, so he had to make sure that I do not give up.

The pressure was clearly visible from the forehead of the young man and sweat was also leaking from his forehead. For the right people present there, now this chess board had become like the axis of the earth. Mahant got off to a bad start. The young man walked hard but for a moment he looked at the Mahant’s face. Then deliberately started playing poorly. Suddenly the Mahant stumbled and dropped the chessboard on the ground. The Mahant said, “You know more than what you were taught. You can put all your focus on winning and fight for your dreams. Then Karna awakened within you and you decided to make sacrifices for the sake of good work.

The mahant continued, “You are welcome to this monastery because you know how to reconcile discipline and compassion, so you can.”
