KNOWLEDGE A Mulla Nasrudin Story


KNOWLEDGE
A Mulla Nasrudin Story
Retold By
VIKRAM KARVE 

One day  a young village teacher who was a seeker for knowledge told Mulla Nasrudin that he had decided to travel across the world to seek additional knowledge.  

When the young man asked Nasrudin what kind of people he should look for, Mulla Nasrudin recalled some wise words he had once heard from his elders: 

He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool.  

Shun him. 

He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child.  
Teach him. 

He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep.  
Awaken him. 

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is wise.  
Follow him. 

Then Mulla Nasrudin paused for a moment and said:
“But you know how difficult it is to be sure that 
the one who knows, and knows that he knows, really knows. 

Think, Reflect, and have a good laugh – and then think again … !!!.
