The Noise Coming From Within A Monastery

A man is driving down an old dirt road, and his car breaks down in front of a monastery.

He decides to go up to it and knock on the door. One of the monks answers it, and he explains his situation to the monk. The monks welcome him in, let him spend the night, give him food, and even fix his car.

That night as he was going to bed he heard a mysterious sound. He wondered what it was but decided to not worry about it, go to sleep, and ask the monks about it in the morning.

In the morning he went downstairs for breakfast and asked the monks about the mysterious sound he had heard. They merely replied, "Sorry, we can't tell you what that was. You're not a monk."

A little disappointed, he thanked them for their hospitality and went on his way.

A few years later he's coming down the same dirt road, and his car breaks down in front of the same monastery.

He goes up to the monastery, explains his situation to one of the monks, and they welcome him just as they did a few years before.

He stayed in the same room and heard the same mysterious sound as he did the first time. He didn't think too much of it and decided to ask the monks about it in the morning.

The next morning he goes downstairs for breakfast and asks the monks about that mysterious sound again. They gave the same response: "Sorry, we can't tell you what that was. You're not a monk."

This time the man was a bit frustrated and said, "All right, I'm dying to know! If the only way I can find out what it was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?"

One of the monks says to him, "You must travel the Earth and count all the blades of grass and grains of sand. When you've counted both, come back and tell us how many of each you've counted. Then you'll become a monk."

Again, he thanks them for their hospitality and goes on his way.

A few years later he comes back to the monastery after counting all the blades of grass and grains of sand on Earth. The monks then take him down to the basement of the monastery.

They stop at a large set of wooden doors, and one of the monks hands him the key. Once he opens these doors, there's a set of bronze doors behind it.

Behind those are several more sets of doors, each made from a different material. Finally they get to a set of stone doors.

As one of the monks hands him the key, he tells him that these are the last doors. The man unlocks the stone doors and finds out what the source of the mysterious sound was.

But I can't tell you...

You're not a monk!
