beware of darkness

Old story


A man had bought a wonderful present

For the Lord Buddha

He was a poor man and he saved

For many years and suffered a great

Deal just because he wanted to bestow

On the Lord Buddha a present worthy

Of his greatness


Anyway they set an allotted time to meet



And so the man waited…and waited…and waited


What turned out to be a meeting of joy turned

Into a swirling sea of rage


How dare the Buddha take so long to meet me he thought


Finally Lord Buddha arrived and the man in a fit of rage

Shoved the present in Lord Buddha’s hand


He was furious!


Buddha looked at him with eyes of compassion and said

‘Sir, I think you deserve this present more than I’.


With this, the Lord Buddha walked on…
