>
>monks again accept him, feed him, even fix his car.

>
>
>reply, We can't tell you. You're not a monk.

>
>The man says, All right, all right. I'm dying to

>
>
>The monks reply, You must travel the earth and tell

>
>us how many blades of grass there are and the exact

>
>number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers,
>
>
>you will become a monk.
>
>
>The man sets about his task. Some forty-five years

>
>later, he returns and knocks on the door of the
>
>
>monastery. He says, I have traveled the earth and
>
>
>have found what you have asked for. There are
>
>
>145,236,284,232 blades of grass and
>
>
>231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.
>
>
>The monks reply, Congratulations. You are now a
>
>
>monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.
>
>
>The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the
>
>
>head monk says, The sound is right behind that
>
>
>door.
>
>
>The man reaches for the knob, but the door is
>
>
>locked. He says, Real funny. May I have the key?
>
>
>The monks give him the key, and he opens the door.
>
>
>Behind the wooden door is another door made of
>
>
>stone. The man demands the key to the stone door.
>
>
>The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to
>
>
>find a door made of ruby. He demands another key
>
>
>from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is
>
>
>another door, this one made of sapphire.. So it went
>
>
>until the man had gone through doors of emerald,
>
>
>silver, topaz, and amethyst.
>
>
>Finally, the monks say, This is the last key to the
>
>
>last door.
>
>
>The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door,
>
>
>turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to
>
>
>find the source of that strange sound.
>
>
>
>
>
>
>. . . . But I can't tell you what it is because
