Kindness

A story is told in India of an Afghan soldier, who was once travelling with a Brahman. The Brahman, who was a mild and harmless man, careful not to injure the smallest of God’s creation, was repeating to himself the word daya, which means «kindness».
The Afghan, who was a warrior and understood only the rough side of life, asked him what the word meant. The Brahman explained that the word was the same as rahm in his language.
«Ah!» he exclaimed. «I understand very well now what it means. I remember I was kind once in my life, for on the field of battle I saw a wounded man writhing in agony. I was touched and I put my dagger through him and ended his suffering.»
