The mystery of the Ancient Temple
Once upon a time, there existed a temple in India that housed three identical idols that spoke to the devotees.
The idols were of – God of Truth, which always spoke the truth; God of Falsehood, which always lied; and God of Diplomacy which sometimes spoke the truth and at other times lied.
The pilgrims come from all parts of the world to get their questions answered by the Gods. But there was a problem. As the idols were indistinguishable, devotees were not sure from which idol to ask their questions and in turn, they did not know which God has answered and whether to believe it or not.
Once a wise man visited the temple. He asked the question: “Which God is seated at the center?” to all the three idols. The idol on the left, center and right replied God of Truth, God of Diplomacy and God of Falsehood respectively. The wise man at once proclaimed that he had solved the mystery of the temple.
The idols from left to right are: God of Diplomacy, God of Falsehood, God of Truth. The God of Truth is not seated on the left because he always speaks the truth whereas the idol on the left replied that the God of Truth is seated at the center. The God of Truth is also not seated in the center as he always speaks the truth but the idol at the center replied that the God of Diplomacy is seated at the center. Therefore, the God of Truth is seated on the right. As God of Truth is seated on the right, and he always speaks the truth, then The God of Falsehood is seated at the center. The God of Diplomacy is seated on the left and he has lied.
