Mara was out with some fellow demons one day, and they saw a seeker of truth doing a walking meditation. The person stopped, bent over and examined something on the ground and rose up obviously delighted. One of the demons asked Mara what the man had found, and Mara replied, “A piece of the truth.” And the demon replied, “Doesn’t that worry you? Aren’t you going to do something about it?” Mara replied, “No, it doesn’t bother me.” To which the demon responded, “Why not?” And mara said, “Very soon people will make this bit of truth into a belief.”
