ASOKA AS A FATHER

A vast multitude attended the congregation as expected, with vessels evidently. Gosha began the sermon. It went on. As it progressed, it touched the hearts of the audience forcefully. It drew tears involuntarily, which were collected in their respective vessels, as instructed. On completion of the sermon, the saint requested them to pour the collected tears into the golden vessel kept on the altar.

Turning to Kunala he said, "My son, please wash your eyes with the tears in the vessel. I have now taught the mysterious teachings of Buddha. If they are false, or my exposition wrong, no change will be effected and if true, they will bless the blind with the sight". Kunala obeyed. He received his sight at once, as if by magic. He saw the bright, colourful magnificent, wonderful world, once again. The joy of Asoka and the audience was indescribable. They left saying, "There is nothing impossible to a Godman and the evolved soul. God never forsakes the righteous". 

To commemorate this miraculous event, a stupa was erected at Taxila by Asoka.
