There was a man who wanted to get rid of his shadow. But no matter what he did or tried, it just would not go away. He rolled on the floor, he dived into the water. But to no avail; his shadow stayed alongside him.
A wise man who heard of the problem, remarked, “That’s no worry. I have a very simple cure for it.”
“How so?” said the bystanders.
“Well, “said the guru, All a person has to do to get rid of his shadow is to stand in the shadow of the tree.”
