Buddha: “You slay me.”
Everyone else on the road: “Ok.”
Siddhartha Gautama set out to improve the world, to free people from the cycle of karma, the wheel to which all are bound, where there is suffering with some and joy with others, inequity and inequality in all material things. After a long time and much experience, he discovered that there is no escape from the wheel, and that the majority of suffering comes from the desire to have things be other than what they are. For this, he was recognized as the Buddha Incarnate, the Gautama Buddha.
“No one. There is no self who?’
That’s just his nature.
The Buddha walks up to a hot-dog vendor and says “Make me one with everything.”
A young man shouts across the river to a buddhist monk : Help me, I need to get to the other side! The monk shouts back: but my son, you’re already on the other side!
There is no self, it is an illusion, the truth is the Self, the one who observes the observer. The eye that can see the eye that can not see itself.
