The blind man and the sun

The blind man and the sun story

Once upon a time, there lived a blind man who had never seen the sun. he asked a friend to tell him what it was like.
“it’s like a brass plate,” his friend said. The blind man struck a brass plate with a stick and listened to the sound. Every time he heard a similar sound, he thought it was the sun.
His friend explained that “The sun is like a candle.” The blind man felt a candle with his hand. He believed it was the same shape as the sun.
Then his friend told him that the sun is like a great ball of fire. Later that winter, whenever the blind man sat in front of a fire, he thought it was the sun.
The sun is really quite different from all these things; but the blind man did not know this because he could not see it.
In the same way, the Truth is often hard to see. If you cannot see it when it is right in front of you, then you are just like the blind man.
