Long ago, Buddha and his followers were resting underneath a tree when suddenly a man came and spat in Buddha's face. His followers grew outraged but Buddha was’t angry or offended and calmly said to the man, “What next? There must be something you mean to say.” Everyone grew silent. Buddha continued, “This man does not know me and therefore has not offended me. He must have formed some ill notion of me, heard some rumors so this man has not spit on me. He has spit on his notion of me. He has spit on his own mind.” Buddha then turned to the man and lovingly asked him,”What more do you wish to say?” The man, shocked, confused and amazed ran home. That night he found it was impossible to sleep. He could not explain this encounter and was haunted by it, trembling and sweating all through the night. He had never come across such a man and this experience shattered his previous way of being. This encounter shook him to his core. The next morning the man returned and threw himself at Buddha's feet, asking for forgiveness. Buddha, lifting his body lovingly replied, “The Ganges goes on flowing and is never the same again. Every man is a river. Much has happened this past Twenty-four hours and the man that you spat on is no longer here, I just look like him. You have also changed. You are new and I am new. These two people, the man who spat and the one who was spit on are no more. Come, friend. Let us talk of something else.” ... read more »
