In Northern India stood a monastery called The Chubara of Dhunni Bhagat.

No one remembered who or what Dhunni Bhagat had been. He had lived his

life, made a little money and spent it all, as every good Hindu should

do, on a work of piety--the Chubara. That was full of brick cells, gaily

painted with the figures of Gods and kings and elephants, where worn-out

priests could sit and meditate on the latter end of things; the paths

were brick paved, and the naked feet of thousands had worn them into

trees overhung the well-windlass that whined all day; and hosts of

parrots tore through the trees. Crows and squirrels were tame in that

place, for they knew that never a priest would touch them.

 

The wandering mendicants, charm-sellers, and holy vagabonds for a

hundred miles round used to make the Chubara their place of call and

were old men, and when man has come to the turnstiles of Night all the

creeds in the world seem to him wonderfully alike and colourless.
