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…
