The Parable of the Gift by Siddhartha Buddha

The teacher asked to them: - If somebody arrives to you with a gift and you do not accept it, to whom do the gift belong ? - To who tried to give it - one of the students responded. -

The same is for he who brings slander and insults- the teacher said. When they are not accepted, they continue belonging to he who brought them with himself.

Great Teachers often spoke in parables and this is one of my favorites.
