OK coming back to the "Talking Pot." It's a story about how a disciple felt he could do better if he left his Guru's ashram. His service was to fetch water from the Yamuna daily. The disciple thought he would be better off if he found a job and got married. But the pot talked him out of it and he ran back to his Guru.

After the story I asked my student, Darren, about the moral of the story. Below is the excerpt of the conversation.
Me: So what do you think of the story Darren?
Darren: Very nice.
