Demystification Of The Buddha
I personally feel that it is very important, that though we place
the Buddha upon a pedestal high up in respect, we should think of
Him in a demystified, unsuperstious way. We should bear in mind
that as high as the pedestal may be, we can reach it if we try
hard enough. The moment a person hero-worships him, he is
wrong-because though a Buddha is literally the greatest hero the
world has ever seen and will ever see, He never asked to be
worshipped. In fact, the historical Shakyamuni Buddha told us not
to make any images of Him. But we, as emotional creatures, need
images to remember His greatness by. Constant hero-worshipping
is also suggestive that we are constantly belittling ourselves. A
true worshipper is humble and reverent and at the same time,
knowing that deep down, of his ability and aspiration to become a
Buddha. If the imagery of the Buddha that comes to mind for a
person is a being with mystical supernatural power, he is most
likely a superstitious person. This is of course just as
discouraged by the Buddha-for He never tried to present Himself
as a magical mystical being. The only instances He displayed His
psychic powers were when there was a need to humble or inspire.
So how do we see the Buddha? Just see Him as the wisest and
kindest person ever. Nothing fancy in that sense. His greatness
is in his ability to connect with us totally as Human Beings,
understanding us all and offering us a path that leads to True
Happiness. Let us all feel close to Him. The closer you feel you
are to Him, the closer you are to your very own Buddha Nature and
Buddhahood itself!
