Whose servant am I?

Mulla Nasrudin had become a favorite at Court. He used his position to show up the methods of courtiers.

One day the King was exceptionally hungry. Some aubergines had been so deliciously cooked that he told the palace chef to serve them every day.

“Are they not the best vegetables in the world, Mulla?” he asked Nasrudin.

“The very best, Majesty”

Five days later, when the aubergines had been served for the tenth meal in succession, the King roared: “Take these things away! I HATE them!”

“They are the worst vegetables in the world, Majesty, “agreed Nasrudin.

“But Mulla, less than a week ago you said that they were the very best.”

“I did. But I am the servant of the King, not of the vegetable.”

      It is interesting how he reminds the King where his obligations are grounded…it reminds us where we should keep our obligations as well….

      And I think it also tells you that any person gets tired quickly of the superficial things…
