Who is the Buddha? What is the Buddha? Here are some of the answers given by various masters to this question:
Something of clay, with a gold-leaf
The one there in the hall.
He isn't Buddha.
The mountains are traveling over the sea.
Look at that three-legged donkey.
The mouth is the gateway of woe.
The best artist doesn't know how to paint him.
The bamboo grove out in back.
I meditated on this a bit and got nowhere.... Any ideas?
I can understand the meaning in all but Dry shit
I am so confused
Dried shit. Who walks around with useless crap? Move on here.
