Everybody and everything tells or shares a story.
Once upon eons ago, there lived a very wise sage. He was an old and very experienced soul. He lived in a land that was wrought with troubles of all kinds. People were helpless, ignorant and highly confused lot. The rulers too did not know how to handle the utter chaos floating around them.
The sage observed the helplessness and was compelled to help ease the sorry situation. He went to the rulers and spoke to them at length. They were happy to have such a learned sage helping to solve their problem and entrusted their all to him.
