Once there lived a Brahim in Mithila (part of state of Bihar). He studied all the different Vidyas (knowledge) for a very long time and became an adept in them. He got blessed with a son. But he studied only up to the level of Matriaks. His father tried to teach him many things but the boy never showed any interest at all to study. His father asked him again and again but the boy refused telling that there is no need to study anything more. His father was totally dejected thinking that he himself is a great scholar and his son is a total illiterate. One day when his father was pressing him hard to study more, the boy said there is nothing more needed to learn since all the knowledge of the world is inside the matriakas or alphabets only. On being asked by his father as to how, the son replied as follows,
A-kaar is Brahma,
U-kaar is Vishnu,
M-kaar is Maheshwar.

Intellect is the woman which takes many forms. She takes many forms by taking up many subjects and things. Though with multiple forms, when it comes in contact with Dharma, it takes ONE form only. One who knows this, never goes to hell. Thus O Father there is nothing more to learn which I already know. Thus he made his father speechless…………Om!
