I have read a book named-
A rose is a rose is a rose……
But yesterday I read something so wonderful that it made me to write this post-
A fool is a fool is a fool…….
Yesterday I read an article in a magazine.The magazine was nice.But the article was written by quite an insightful person.I laugh at daring of such people….people who compare Gautam Buddha with a husband trying to succeed in his business and Yashodhara with this man’s wife!Why?I would like to ask the author-Have you even felt a single line of Buddha?Have you given your hand in his hand?Do you even know what Buddha means?Do you know on which path Buddha walked?What this path dealt with?What was Buddha’s totality?Lives are insufficient to understand Buddha and people writing in a college magazine have started criticizing him.I cannot tolerate……
Buddha is one of the persons I love most.Buddha was the one who has walked and encountered highest peaks of totality.Buddha is the one who has traveled the most difficult path.But people have nothing to with this.No one is ready to sit at a place and meditate on Buddha.But they think that they are mature enough to comment.Mature enough to criticize Buddha in a college magazine which 3000 students will read.The whole humanity is playing this game with Masters.They feel quite uplifted by thinking that they have found a fault in Buddha.A fault in a man to which whole humanity considers perfect.But this only shows that how fool you are.Buddha has got the position which no one can reach.But now I understand the meaning of phrase “Laughing Buddha”.Buddha must be laughing after reading the article.He is such a lovely person.He will not even be angry or sad after reading that bogus article,he will just laugh.And yes,it is worth laughing only.That is what i I am doing while typing this post.
Siddhartha leaving his home was a divine plan.Not a future plan of some office going engineer.The impact of what Buddha saw was so subtle,that even if Buddha would have stayed at home,it would not have helped Yashodhara in any way.This is not a general story of a man running behind his carrier.This is story of eternal quest.I would advice author that first understand what eternal quest means……how it feels when you have it within….what walking on a Razor’s edge means…..then if you are in a position of criticizing Buddha,do it………….
