I'm Awake

By Admin on 30-12-2013

It is said that soon after his enlightenment, the Buddha passed a man who was struck by the Buddha's extra ordinary radiance and peaceful presence.
The man stopped him and asked,
“My friend, who are you? Are you a celestial being or God?”
“No,” said the Buddha.
“Well, then, are you some kind of magician or wizard? 
Again the Buddha replied, “No.”
“Are you a man?”
“Well, then, my friend, what are you?”
The Buddha replied, ” I am awake.”
