One day the Buddha was sitting with his monks. A distraught farmer approached. “Monks, have you seen my cows?”
The Buddha said, “No we have not.”
The farmer continued, “I am distraught. I have only twelve cows, and now they are gone. How will I survive?”
The Buddha looked at him with compassion and said, “I’m sorry my friend, we have not seen them. You may want to look in the other direction.”
After the farmer had gone, the Buddha turned to his monks, looked at them deeply, smiled and said, “Dear ones, do you know how lucky you are? You don’t have any cows to lose.”
