The Tale of Balohar and Yusazaf (The Prince)
One of the tales from story:
The Prince said ,”O Wise person! Relate to me some tale that reflects on the futility of the World!”
Balohar said : “It is said that once an Elephant chased a Man. The man ran scared and the elephant chased him the more! On the way there was a Well. Near the parapet of the well grew a Tree. The man, in desperation,hung to a Branch of Tree. He saw that at the base of the tree there were four Snakes and under these snakes a Python was lying with its mouth wide open! When he looked up, he found white and black mice cutting away the branch on which he was precariously hanging. He noticed that there was honey on a branch within his reach. He started licking the honey oblivious of the hazards around him.
O Prince! Life in the world is full of Hazard and Hardships. The four snakes are the Strong Passion, Bile, Phlegm and Blood. Any excess or shortage of these in the body of a person can be the cause of his Death. The two Mice,White and Black are the Day and Night in the life of a person that are busy cutting short life. The python with mouth wide open is the Death. But the man thinks that the world for him is Sweet like the Honey! The sweetness of the honey makes him oblivious of the hazard around him!”
