One day two of Sirna's students approached the master and said, "There is much in The Book over which we contend, and after many months of discussion we are unable to resolve our differences. Would you, Master, hear our dispute and give us the answers we need?"
Sirna looked up and said, "Do you see the goat on the hill before us? Go and give the goat The Book and he will answer the dispute."
The students were appalled. "But, Master," they said, "if we give The Book to the goat, he will eat it." Sirna answered, "It is better that The Book make a goat happy than come between any two people."
