The Banyan Deer is a touching story of how one animal’s brave soul and ability to follow what is true can lead to a complete change in the lives and attitudes of many—even a king.
And although in The Banyan Deer the heroic characters are deer who influence a man, this powerful parable holds true for all of humanity. In fact, humanity would do well to learn the lesson of this important story.
The Banyan Deer is a parable told by Rafe Martin that teaches the reader about the power of standing up for truth and justice, even at the risk of sticking out your own neck. It seems today most people keep quiet as not to disturb the unhealthy status quo. Some speak out for what they believe, but only very few are willing to walk the walk as well.
