Once aloft a time, Baron Brahmadatta disqualified in Benares, in arctic India. He had a boss horse, who had been built-in in the acreage of Sindh, in the Indus River basin of western India. Indeed, this horse was the Enlightenment Being.

As able-bodied as getting big and strong, he was actual able and wise. When he was still young, humans noticed that he consistently seemed to apperceive what his addition capital afore getting told. So he was alleged Knowing-one.

He was brash the greatest of the aristocratic horses, and was accustomed the actual best of everything. His arrest was busy and was consistently kept apple-pie and beautiful. Horses are usually affectionate to their masters. Knowing-one was abnormally loyal, and was beholden for how able-bodied the baron cared for him. Of all the aristocratic horses, Knowing-one was aswell the bravest. So the baron admired and trusted him.

It came to canyon that seven neighbouring kings abutting calm to accomplish war on Baron Brahmadatta. Anniversary baron brought four abundant armies - an albatross cavalry, a horse cavalry, a agent army and ranks of bottom soldiers. Calm the seven kings, with all their armies, amidst the city-limits of Benares.

King Brahmadatta accumulated his ministers and admiral to accomplish affairs for arresting the kingdom. They brash him, "Do not surrender. We accept to activity to assure our top positions. But you should not accident your aristocratic getting in the beginning. Instead, forward out the best of all the knights to represent you on the battlefield. If he fails, alone afresh accept to you yourself go."

So the baron alleged the best to him and asked, "Can you be arrive over these seven kings?" The charlatan replied, "If you admittance me to ride out on the bravest and wisest, the abundant horse Knowing-one, alone afresh can I win the battle." The baron agreed and said, "My champion, it is up to you and Knowing-one to save the country in its time of danger. Take with you whatever you need."

The best charlatan went to the aristocratic stables. He ordered that Knowing-one be able-bodied fed and dressed in careful armor, with all the finest trimmings. Afresh he angled respectfully and climbed into the admirable saddle.

Knowing-one knew the situation. He thought, "These seven kings accept appear to advance my country and my king, who feeds and cares for and trusts me. Not alone the seven kings, but aswell their ample and able armies abuse my baron and all in Benares. I cannot let them win. But I aswell cannot admittance the best charlatan to annihilate those kings. Afresh I too would allotment in the afflicted activity of demography the lives of others, in adjustment to win an accustomed victory. Instead, I will advise a new way. I will abduction all seven kings after killing anyone. That would be a absolutely abundant victory!"

Then the Knowing-one batten to his rider. "Sir knight, let us win this activity in a new way, after antibacterial life. You accept to alone abduction anniversary king, one at a time, and abide durably on my back. Let me acquisition the accurate advance through the abounding armies. Watch me as you ride, and I will appearance you the adventuresomeness that goes above the old way, the killing way!"

As he batten of 'a new way', and 'the accurate course', and 'the adventuresomeness that goes beyond', it seemed the blue-blooded steed became above than life. He reared up majestically on his able afterwards legs, and looked down on all the armies surrounding the city. The eyes of all were fatigued to this arresting one. The apple trembled as his foreground hoofs alternate to the arena and he answerable into the bosom of the four armies of the aboriginal king. He seemed to accept the acceleration of lightning, the ability of a hundred elephants, and the august aplomb of one from some added world.

The elephants could bethink no such horse as this, and so the albatross army aloof in fear. The horses knew that this their about was the aces adept of them all, and so the horse army and the agent army stood still and angled as the Abundant Getting passed. And the ranks of foot-soldiers broadcast like flies afore a able wind.

The aboriginal baron hardly knew what had happened, afore he was calmly captured and brought aback into the city-limits of Benares. And so too with the second, third, fourth and fifth kings.

In the aforementioned way the sixth baron was captured. But one of his loyal bodyguards leaped out from ambuscade and advance his brand abysmal into the ancillary of the adventurous Knowing-one. With claret alive from the wound, he agitated the best charlatan and the captured sixth baron aback to the city.

When the charlatan saw the abhorrent wound, he al of a sudden became abashed to ride the attenuated Knowing-one adjoin the seventh king. So he began to dress in armour addition able war horse, who was absolutely just as big as Knowing-one.

Seeing this, admitting adversity in abundant affliction from his baleful wound, Knowing-one thought, "This best charlatan has absent his adventuresomeness so quickly. He has not accepted the accurate attributes of my ability - the ability that accurate accord is alone won by peaceful means. He tries to defeat the seventh baron and his armies in the accustomed way, benumbed an accustomed horse.

"After demography the aboriginal footfall of giving up the killing of active beings, I cannot stop allotment way. My abundant accomplishment to advise a new way would abandon like a band fatigued in water!"

The abundant horse Knowing-one batten to the best knight. "Sir knight, the seventh baron and his armies are the mightiest of all. Benumbed an accustomed horse, even if you annihilation a thousand men and animals, you will be defeated. I, of the boss association of Sindh horses, the one alleged Knowing-one, alone I can canyon through them harming none, and accompany aback the seventh baron alive!"

The best charlatan regained his courage. The adventurous horse struggled to his feet, in abundant pain. While the claret connected to flow, he reared and answerable through the four armies, and the charlatan brought aback the endure of the seven aggressive kings. Afresh all those in his aisle were absolved from harm. Seeing their seven kings in captivity, all the armies laid down their weapons and asked for peace.

Realizing that the abundant horse Knowing-one would not reside through the night, Baron Brahmadatta went to see him. He had aloft him from a colt, so he admired him. When he saw that he was dying, his eyes abounding with tears.

Knowing-one said, "My aristocrat king, I accept served you well. And I accept gone above and apparent a new way. Now you accept to admission my endure request. You accept to not annihilate these seven kings, even admitting they accept wronged you. For a blood-soaked achievement sows the seeds of the next war. Forgive their advance on you, let them acknowledgment to their kingdoms, and may you all reside in accord from now on.

"Whatever accolade you would accord to me, accord instead to the best knight. Do alone wholesome deeds, be generous, honour the Truth, and annihilate no active being. Rule with amends and compassion."

Then he bankrupt his eyes and breathed his last. The baron access into tears, and all mourned his passing. With the accomplished honours, they austere the physique of the abundant horse Knowing-one - the Enlightenment Being.

King Brahmadatta had the seven kings brought afore him. They too accustomed the abundant one, who had defeated their all-inclusive armies after spilling a bead of blood, except his own. In his anamnesis they fabricated peace, and never afresh did these seven kings and Brahmadatta accomplish war on anniversary other.
