This is the story of four Brahmin friends. Som, Vesh, Jeevan and Budh. They lived together in a small village. All four of them were the students of a Sage who lived in the forest. The Sage was a simple but a very learned man. The Brahmins respected their teacher.
这是四个婆罗门朋友的故事。Som, Vesh, Jeevan和Budh。他们一起住在一个小村庄里。他们四个人都是住在森林里一位圣人的学生。这位圣人是个简单的人，但很有学问。婆罗门尊敬他们的老师。
Every day, they would listen to their teacher very carefully. My children, anybody can become learned but skills alone will not take you anywhere. You have to learn to use it wisely. Som, Vesh and Jeevan learnt many skills. Vesh could heal a wound without touching it. Som could mend a broken pot. Jeevan could take a fallen dead leaf and attach it back to the tree.
But Budh was the slowest among all. He could not do any of these things, the 3 friends always make jokes on Budh. Come on, pot, mend, mend! Budh has learned a new skill. He can talk to the broken pieces of a pot. Oh yes, but the broken pieces have not learnt the skill to mend. Poor broken pot!
But Budh never complained. Guruji, What do you mean by common-sense? That's easy. Common sense is when we think before we act. One day, Som, Vesh and Jeevan decided to travel out of the village. This village is too small. We will never be the most learned men if we live here for the rest of our lives. We should travel to learn more.
