Buddha Quote

Wednesday August 5, 2020

Human
I seriously believe that the way to Buddhahood is the process of
trying hard to be more and more Human, with the belief that a
truly good Human is one perfect in thought, word and deed. To be
a good Human is to become very Humane. And history tells us that
there was no one ever as Humane as the Buddha in the name of His
limitless Compassion and Wisdom. When many of us Buddhists talk
about aspiring to become a Buddha, we often think about it in the
sense that a Buddha is a very transcendental being totally
different from us Human Beings. Here is the good news: let's be
reminded that Buddhas were Humans. But out of great Compassion
for Humanity, these "ordinary" Humans became the most
extraordinary beings. They became Buddhas-perfected Human Beings,
living examples for all to see. And it is only because they
became perfected Human Beings, so perfect that they transcend the
most of ordinary Humanity, that we call them by another name all
together-Buddhas. Not God, not angel, not human-but Buddha (The
Awakened One). Buddhahood-so far yet not so far... it is from
this Human realm that we transform to be Buddhas. Might take a
long time, so keep transforming and may we leap the line soon,
changing our labels. Human to Buddha. May all Humans aspire
towards Buddhahood.
