About this blog

There is a Buddhist story about the only man in a village who did not have a horse. People would say "You are so unlucky, you have no horse". The man would say "Wait and see".

Then one day the man caught a wild horse and his neighbors said "Now you have a horse. You are so lucky". The man said "Wait and see".

The next day the man's son fell off the horse and was paralyzed. The villagers gathered around him and said "Friend, you are so unlucky. Your son is paralyzed". The man said "Wait and see".

Soon thereafter a war with a neighboring state broke out. All the young men in the village went off to war except the paralyzed son --and were all killed.

"You are so lucky. Because your son was paralyzed he is the only one alive in the village." The man said "Wait and see".

And thus begins The Asia Chronicles.
