PS: The story sometimes is called "The wise men and the Elephant" and the number of wise men also varies. As we discussed, one of the reasons is because it is a very old story. Hinduism and Buddhism have more than 2.500 years! Hinduism has almost 5.000 years!. Another question is how the story has been passed, it belongs to an oral tradition i.e. it may be more subjected of changes than written stories. It will vary a little bit through time and through cultures. Beware in some cultures animals like elephant are very important (they are considered "sacred") and that's why they come first in the title of the story and in other cultures humans are more important, that's why they come second in the title.
PS: Prepare questions and interesting facts for next lesson about Introduction to Hinduism. I hope you en-joy it! :-)
