In a small mountain village, a wise old man talks to his three sons.
Father: When I die, the wisest son can have the farm.
Brother 3: Who is the wisest son?

Brothers 1 and 2: Me!
Father: Climb the mountain and ask the Buddha.

The brothers climb the mountain.
The big brothers are nasty to the small brother.

Brother 1: I'm older and wiser than you.
Brother 2: I'm stronger and wiser than you.

Soon, they are lost. The oldest brother wants to be leader.

Brother 1: I'm older than you. Let me lead.

The youngest brother climbs a tree. He sees and points to a path. The oldest brother copies him.
Brother 1: I can see a path!

But soon, rocks block their path.

Brother 2: I'm stronger than you. Let me move the rocks.

The rocks are too heavy to move.The youngest brother clears a path. 
The oldest brother copies him.

Brother 1: I can clear a path!

It is night time and the brothers are hungry.

Brother 2: I'm faster than you. Let me catch a rabbit.

He returns with no rabbit. The youngest brother makes a
vegetable stew.

Brother 1: I'm bigger than you. Let me finish the stew.

The next day, a bear blocks their path.

Brother 1: I'm braver than you. Let me fight the bear.

The bear stands up and roars. The oldest brother runs away. But the youngest brother plays sad music. 
The bear sleeps and the brothers escape.


Finally, they reach the Buddha.

Brother 1: He’s younger than me. Let me speak.
Brother 2: No, he’s weaker than me. Let me speak.

Buddha: I'm the Buddha. Let ME speak. The 
wisest brother is listening.

Brothers 1 and 2: You!

APRIL FOOLS' DAY

April Fools' Day is celebrated in many countries on April 1st. It's not a holiday, but on this day, some people play tricks or funny jokes on friends, family members or other people to make the victim feel fool or stupid. In Spain we have a similar celebration on 28th December "Dia dels Inocents".


Traditionally, in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, the jokes finish at noon (12 o'clock), and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool". In other countries ( France, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Canada, and the U.S.A.), the jokes last all day.
