Courtesy on a bus.

In the East the symbol of wisdom.

This question was also put to me by the sixteen year old boy from a Himalayan country about four years ago.

“Every morning I go to school by bus and go to the bus stop early to get a good seat. However, it most often happens that very soon on the journey and old person or a pregnant woman boards the bus where, because the bus is crowded, they have nowhere to sit and I give them my seat.
Should I go early for the bus when all I seem to have to do is give up my seat?”

Over to you, dear reader!


About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.

    There was no valid reason for the questioner to change his routine.

    Since it is very probable that no-one else offers his/her seat on the bus, it would well be worth waking up early on a regular basis. If both a pregnant woman and an old person would board at the same time, to whom would you offer your seat?

Well, what do you say?
