PHYLLIS ODESSEY

Happy Thanksgiving

One of his students asked Buddha, “Are you the Messiah?”
“No”, answered Buddha.
“Then are you a healer?”
“No,”, Buddha replied.
“Then are you a teacher?” the student persisted.
“No, I am not a teacher.”
“Then what are you?” asked the student, exasperated.
“I am awake”, Buddha replied.
