Moral story about bullying

One day Buddha was walking with his students through a village, where the opponents of Buddhism lived. The people of the village surrounded Buddha and his students and started insulting them. In respond, the students got angry and wanted to retort, but the presence of Buddha calmed them down. The words of Buddha confused not only the students but also the villagers.

He turned to his students and said:

– You disappointed me. These people are doing their thing. They are angry. They think that I am an enemy of their religion and their moral belief. These people are insulting me and it’s obvious. But why are you angry? Why did you let these people manipulate you? Now you depend on them, therefore you’re not free.

The people from the village were completely confused and asked:

– But we were insulting you, why aren’t you mad at us?

Buddha smiled:

– You are free people, and what you did – is your business. I am also a free person and a master of my own actions. That is why I have my own right not to react to manipulation and be free from anger.

One man was publicly offending Omar Chajam:
– You’re an atheist! You’re drinker! Almost a thief!
Chajam just smiled in response.
One dandy dressed in the silk trousers watching that scene asked Chajam:
– How can you tolerate such offences? Don’t you feel hurt?
Omar Chajam smiled again and told:
– Let’s go with me.
Dandy followed him to the dusty lumber-room. Chajam lighted the kindling and began rummaging in the trunk, where found completely worthless tattered robe. He threw it to dandy and said:
– Try it, it will match you.
Dandy took a robe, looked at it and resented:
– What these dirty rags are for? I am well dressed, and you must be crazy! – and threw a robe back.
– You see, – Chajam said, – you did not want to try rags. Similarly, I did not want to try those dirty words that man threw me.
To be aggrieved by offences means to try on rags someone throw us.
