Parables









And the Blessed One thought: "I have taught the truth which is
excellent in the beginning, excellent in the middle, and
excellent in the end; it is glorious in its spirit and glorious
in its letter. But simple as it is, the people cannot understand
it. I must speak to them in their own language. I must adapt my
thoughts to their thoughts. They are like unto children, and love
to hear tales. Therefore, I will tell them stories to explain the
glory of the Dharma. If they cannot grasp the truth in the
abstract arguments by which I have reached it, they may
nevertheless come to understand it, if it is illustrated in
parables."
