Title: Contemplative Zen Story
Post by: Nagaraj on September 24, 2011, 04:16:06 PM
A young Buddhist was perplexed about crossing a wide river on his journey home. In hopeless desperation of crossing the barrier that lay ahead of him, barring him from reaching the other end, he thought for hours. The Buddhist then was about to give up his pursuit, when he spotted a great master on the other bank.

The Buddhist shouted out to the master for help, "Oh wise one, can you tell me how I can get back to the other side of the river?"

The master in response looked about the river up and down and yelled back "Son you are on the other"

Salutations to Bhagavan
