A renunciant couple were once proceeding through a thick jungle on a pilgrimage to an inaccessible shrine.

The husband saw on the footpath a precious stone, shining brilliantly when the Sun’s rays fell upon it from between the leaves. He hastily threw some sand over it with the movement of his foot, so that his wife may not be tempted to pick it up and become a slave to the tinsel.

The wife saw the gesture and chided the husband for still retaining in his mind, a distinction between sand and gold. For her, both were the same.

This habit of judging and labelling others is a prevalent practice today. What can you know of the inner working of another’s mind?
