Fear Factor

A long time ago, the goddess of disease, went from village to village making people severely sick. However, in one village, the village goddess stopped her from entering since she was morally bound to protect them. The goddess of disease argued, “It is your Karma (virtue) as well as Dharma (Duty) to protect – it is mine to cause illness and death in order to balance the population on Mother Earth. We are part of the same creation. Therefore, you should allow me to enter and do my dharma.” The village goddess granted permission – reluctantly – on a condition that the goddess of disease would not take the lives of more than two people. However, after the stipulated time was over, just as the goddess of disease was about to leave the village, the goddess of the village called out to her and asked “What did you do? I allowed you only to take the lives of two people – but so far ten have died!” The goddess of disease replied, “I did exactly as you requested – but the others died (or are dying) out of fear of disease.”
