Junaid- a mystic

Junaid was going through the market-place of the town with his

disciples. And it was his way to take any situation and use it.

A man was dragging his cow by a rope,

And Junaid said ‘Wait’ to the man, and told his disciples,

‘”Surround this man and the cow. I am going to teach
you something.”

‘The man stopped – Junaid was a famous mystic – and he

was also interested in what he was going to teach these disciples

and how he was going to use him and the cow.

And Junaid asked his disciples

‘I ask you one thing: who is bound to whom?

Is the cow bound to this man or is this man bound to this cow?’

“Of course,”

The disciples said

‘The cow is bound to the man.

The man is the master, he is holding the rope,

The cow has to follow him wherever he goes.

He is the master and the cow is the slave.

‘And Junaid said ‘Now, see.’ He took out his

scissors and cut the rope – and the cow escaped.

The man ran after the cow, and Junaid said

‘Now look what is happening!

Now you see who is the master;

the cow is not interested at all in this man – infact, it

is escaping.’ And the man was very angry,

he said ‘What kind of experiment is this ?

‘But Junaid said to his disciples

‘And this is the case with your mind.

All the nonsense that you are carrying inside is not interested in you. You are interested in it, you are keeping it together somehow – you are becoming madin keeping it together somehow. But you are interested IN it.
The moment you lose interest, the moment you understand the futility of it, it will start disappearing; like the
cow it will escape.’
