Zen zgodba: Diamant


diamant

Sanjasi je prišel v bližino vasi in si pod drevesom uredil ležišče za noč. Tedaj je pritekel k njemu vaščan in rekel: »Kamen! Kamen! Daj mi dragoceni kamen!«
»Kakšen kamen?« je vprašal sanjasi.
»Preteklo noč se mi je v sanjah prikazal bog Šiva,« je dejal vaščan, »in mi povedal, da bom o mraku na robu vasi našel sanjasija, ki mi bo dal dragocen kamen, da bom bogat za vse življenje.«
Sanjasi je pobrskal po svoji malhi in potegnil iz nje kamen. »Verjetno je mislil tegale,« je rekel, ko je izročil kamen vaščanu. »Pred nekaj dnevi sem ga našel na gozdni poti. Vsekakor ti ga rad dam.«
Mož je ves začuden ogledoval kamen. Bil je diamant. Verjetno največji diamant na vsem svetu, kajti bil je velik kot človeška glava.
Vzel je diamant in odšel. Vso noč se je premetaval po postelji n sploh ni mogel spati. Naslednjega jutra je že ob prvi zori prebudil sanjasija in mu dejal: »Podari mi tisto bogastvo, ki ti omogoča, da tako zlahka daš iz rok ta diamant.«

*sanjasi (sannyasin = tisti, ki se odpoveduje): vrsta indijskega meniha-asketa; zadnji od »štiri obdobij hindujskega življenja« = stopnja odpovedi

The sannyasi had reached the outskirts of the village and settled down under a tree for the night when a villager came running up to him and said, “The stone! The stone! Give me the precious stone!”
“What stone?” asked the sannyasi.
“Last night the Lord Shiva appeared to me in a dream,” said the villager, “And told me that if I went to the outskirts of the village at dusk I should find a sannyasi who would give me a precious stone that would make my rich forever.”
The sannyasi rummaged in his bag and pulled out a stone. “He probably meant this one,” he said, as he handed the stone over to the villager. “I found it on a forest path some days ago. You can certainly have it.”
The man gazed at the stone in wonder. It was a diamond, probably the largest diamond in the whole world, for it was as large as a person’s head.
He took the diamond and walked away. All night he tossed about in bed, unable to sleep. Next day at the crack of dawn he woke the sannyasi and said, “Give me the wealth that makes it possible for you to give this diamond away so easily.”

*Sannyasa (saṃnyāsa) is a form of asceticism, is marked by renunciation of material desires and prejudices, represented by a state of disinterest and detachment from material life, and has the purpose of spending one’s life in peaceful, love-inspired, simple spiritual life. Is the life stage of renunciation within the Hindu philosophy of four age-based life stages known as ashramas, with the first three being Brahmacharya (bachelor student), Grihastha (householder) and Vanaprastha (forest dweller, retired). Sannyasa is traditionally conceptualized for men or women in late years of their life, but young brahmacharis have had the choice to skip the householder and retirement stages, renounce worldly and materialistic pursuits and dedicate their lives to spiritual pursuits (moksha).
