  Presented and Selected by…

  (adapted from the Dhammapada, translated by Thomas Byrom)



It is said that soon after his enlightenment the Buddha passed a man on the road who was struck by the Buddha's extraordinary radiance and peaceful presence. The man stopped and asked, "My friend, what are you? Are you a celestial being or a god?"


"No," said the Buddha.

  "Well, then, are you some kind of magician or wizard?"

Again the Buddha answered, "No."

  "Are you a man?"


  "Well, my friend, then what are you?"

The Buddha replied, "I am awake."

  Love yourself and be awake…..
Today, tomorrow, always.
  First establish yourself in the way,
Then teach others,
And so defeat sorrow.
  To straighten the crooked
You must first do a harder thing…
Straighten yourself.
  You are your only master. Who else?
Subdue yourself,
And discover your master.

      Be a Master
