Noble Buddha |
(Vesak, May, 1985)
Buddha is eternal. Buddha existed before the universe and will exist long after the universe. And since Buddha is always everywhere, the past is the future, and the future is the present.
Buddha's light is brilliant beyond imagination. In comparison, the light of l00,000 days would amount to less than that of a single candle in broad daylight.
Buddha's compassion is unlimited and unfettered. It serves tiny parasites in muddy waters as Buddhas, and it serves the greatest of enemies as parents. This compassion spares nothing in efforts for others: it even gives of its own life, and it is busily stretching its warm fingers to everything.
So let's all strive to open wisdom's Eye, gaze upon this noble sight, and. praise it together.
