An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Truth vs Knowledge

A Great Story that explains the difference in the best manner possible!

A king asked a sage to explain the Truth. In response the sage asked the king how he would convey the taste of a mango to someone who had never eaten anything sweet.

No matter how hard the king tried, he could not adequately describe the flavor of the fruit, and, in frustration, he demanded of the sage “Tell me then, how would you describe it?”

The sage picked up a mango and handed it to the king saying “This is very sweet. Try eating it!”
