This is an event of Mahatma Buddha's life. A shepherd was walking with a herd of goats. A male goat was lame in the herd and he walked slowly. A shepherd beat male goat to bring that into the herd. The Mahatma Buddha was very sad to see this. He got mercy on a goat, He asked the shepherd, where are you going? The shepherd said that I am going to the front hill. Mahatma Buddha said that if I pick up this lame goat and leave it there, then you will not have any objection. The shepherd said smiling, "no". Mahatma Buddha raised the goat and left it in the herd on the hill.
It shows that the heart of the great Sant is full of mercy. They see all the creatures in terms of mercy. They find the existence of the God everywhere and feel God everywhere.
''When we show mercy to somebody, we experience a little quality of the God''
