A man thought that when he lost a game of chess, he failed.

After having studied two years with a famous teacher of Zen, he had understood that he failed if he had won.

Still unsatisfied, he studied a year and a half with the great Sufi saint Narsufin and found out that if he had lost, but was happy with the loss, he failed.

Then he set off for three years to the Himalayas and learned from the great Yogi Maharashi that if he had won, but feels guilty because of it, then he failed.

And then his friends gave him the "Encyclopedia of Chess Openings" and he learned, finally, to develop his pawns.

And then he became a BT and learned that playing Chess is Bittul Torah and he never played again.XGH
