A Small Story from a devotee!
A blind man was brought to Gautama the Buddha. He was a logician, a philosopher, very argumentative. He had been arguing with the village that there is no light, "and you are all blind, just as I am blind. I know it and you don't know it, that's the only difference." He was saying this to people who had eyes! And he was so clever in argument that the villagers were at a loss what to do with this man.
He was asking them, "Bring your light. Let me taste it or smell it or touch it. Only then will I believe."
Now, light cannot be touched, cannot be tasted, cannot be smelled. You cannot hear it. And these were the four senses available to the blind man. Then he would laugh in victory. He would say, "Look! There is no light. Otherwise, give me the proofs!"
Remember, to prove that there is no God is very easy; to prove that there IS God is impossible. To prove the negative is easy because all logic tends to be negative. To prove the positive is not possible; logic has no opening towards the positive. Hence the atheist is more argumentative and the theist feels almost defeated. He cannot prove the existence of God or the soul.
When Buddha came to the village, the villagers thought it would be good: "Let us take this man to Buddha."
Buddha said, "You take him to Jivaka, the physician." Jivaka cured his eyes. Within six months the man was able to see. He came dancing with many flowers and fruits as a present to Buddha. He fell at his feet and he said, "If you had not been there I would have argued my whole life against light!
Now I know the truth!"
ONE WHO HAS EXPERIENCED THE TRUTH DOES NOT ASK FOR LOGICAL PROOF OF IT.
MANY OF THOSE WHO ARE CLAMORING FOR PROOF TODAY ARE THE FOOLS WHO HAVE BEEN WITH AN ENLIGHTENED MASTER AND YET MANAGED TO MISS HIS TRUTH ALTOGETHER.
