Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. – Buddha
|There’s a story of the Buddha after he was enlightened. He was walking down a path and he was completely glowing. He was shining. He was effulgent He was “munawwara”. A man came up to him and was so taken by the light, he asked, “Are you a celestial being, ora god”? He answered, “No”. And then he said, “Well, then you must be a magician”. “No”. “Are you a man”? “No”. “What are you”?
“I am awake. I am pure light”~ Buddha
