Sariputra and Dog Shiet
One day, when Sariputra was meditating in the shade of the mango tree, a peasant came and started insulting him.
Sariputra was quiet, remaining calm.
- Hello, do you hear me? - the peasant said, shacking Sariputra's shoulder.
Sariputra opened his eyes.
- Buddha says that an insult looks like a dog shiet: before you throw it in someone, you have to take it in your hand. And you know, he's right, - Sariputra said and, having grabbed a big pile of dog shiet, threw it right in the peasant's face.
