- As the legend goes, Phra Indra was surveying from the Heavens and spotted a hardworking farmer. The Farmer intrigued Phra Indra because though very hardworking, he lives to hand to mouth. And to make matters more difficult, The Farmer was dutifully caring for his aged and weary Mother. Phra Indra was overwhelmed with Compassion and decided to descend to Earth to help The Farmer. Phra Indra disguised Himself as a Fiery Monster of 4 Ears and 5 Eyes (See-Hoo-Ha-Tah phonetically in Thai language). Phra Indra decided to test The Farmer’s Endurance and Compassion, so Phra Indra destroyed and ate all of his harvest! The Farmer was very angry, and he apprehended Si-Hoo-Ha-Tah and tied him to a post inside his barn. After The Farmer returned home care for his Mother, feeding her, The Farmer found pity for Si-Hoo-Ha-Tah, left alone in the cold, dark barn, and brought out food and some kindling wood to burn charcoals to keep the Monster (Phra Indra in disguise) warm and comfortable before he could decide how best to deal with him. The next day, The Farmer decided the best course of action was to forgive the Monster and set him free. Upon re-entering the barn, The Farmer was shocked to see See-Hoo-Ha-Tah eating the smoldering charcoals, still red hot. Stunned, The Farmer was more amazed to find this Monster, Shitting GOLD NUGGETS!
- See-Hoo-Ha-Tah bid a gentle farewell to the stunned Farmer and returned to the Heavens, leaving our Farmer Hero a very wealthy man.
- The Symbolic Message behind The Divine See-Hoo-Ha-Tah:
- Four Ears, represents Metta, Karuna, Mudita and Upekha:
- Metta meaning universal love
- Karuna meaning compassionate
- Mudita meaning “sympathetic joy” or “happiness at another’s success in life.”
- Upekha meaning equanimity or even tempered, undisturbed
- Much misunderstanding and controversy in this world are caused by miscommunication. For true communication to occur, one person speaks and the other listens. As the Chinese sayings goes, “One speaks without any intentions, but the other listens with intentions!". Sometimes people misinterpret the things we say and the results could be disastrous.
- Therefore we should always listen with Metta, Karuna, Mudita and Upekha.
- Why did Phra Indra disguise Himself as a fiery, ugly looking monster when Phra Indra is a graceful and elegant featured Deity? It symbolises that we shouldn’t judge a book by it cover. This applies to many facets of life.
- See-Hoo-Ha-Tah ate the burning red hot Charcoals and Shit Gold. Charcoal represents the hardship of life. Red-Hot Charcoal represents peak of hardship. It simply means if we can endure and persevere through life’s thick and thin, the meager and the dire and avoid rage or over-reaction, we can find the Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow.
- Many wonder why Phra Indra doesn't help all humanity, but singled out the Hardworking Farmer? Sadly, life often beats the one who needs a break badly. In this case, not only did The Farmer work very hard and persevered despite his meager circumstances, he still took loving care of his mother. If The Farmer had attempted to kill See-Hoo-Ha-Tah out of rage for destroying his crops, Phra Indra would have simply disappeared. Instead The Farmer showed Compassion and Kindness and discovered this Magical Fiery Beast Who Shit Gold Coals and left him a wealthy man.
