Now there entered the city of Komoru a good and gracious man, being called himself,
Noaeya the son of Kishkah; and all which came to know him found in him a man of love
and gentle laughter, being in his soul touched by a deep and happy calm.
Summary: The mortal manifestation and embodiment of the Supreme Father of Heaven,
referred to as The One, Noaeya the son of Kishkah was recognized as a great teacher
and founder of the second dispensation on the world of Terralee. His teachings focused
on the nature of the ego, the virtue of benevolence, the power of love, and the proper
role of law in the affairs of mankind. Noaeya first gained popularity in the city
of Komoru, becoming well-known and loved by many as a story-teller and speaker of
parables. He would sit daily in the marketplace where he would play his flute and
visit kindly with the townspeople (4:10:7-9).
Noaeya became greatly recognized after being invited by the city’s chief magistrate
to dine with the rulers of the region. Noaeya agreed, but not without condition,
saying: “...it is not good that the father should eat while the children are without”
(4:10:17). Receiving word that the magistrate agreed to his proposal, Noaeya invited
all the poor and common people of the city to feast at the great banquet.
With so many people present, the magistrate believed himself advantaged in that he
could be the one to either prove Noaeya false or be the first to publicly honor him
as a wise and holy man (4:10:21-22). What proceeded was an engaging discussion on
the rule of law, the nature of ego, the power of love, and the four pillars of benevolence.
So moved by Noaeya’s words, the magistrate publicly renounced his civil position
that day and went on to become a devout follower of the master. One third of the
city’s rulers also gave up their positions to become followers of Noaeya (4:12:50-64).
