Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks. By night on the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out. The first monk said,”Oh, No! The candle is out.” The second monk said,”Are not, we not supposed to talk?” The third monk said, “Why must you break the silence?” The fourth monk laughed and said,”Ha I Am the only one who did not speak”.
Each monk broke the silence for a different reason. The first monk became was impatient who broke the silence. Second was a fool. The third mink let his anger at the two. And the fourth monk was lost in his ego.
