Killing the Buddha on the Road

Killing the Buddha on the Road


    Once there was a great swordsman who traveled throughout the land fighting great battles and defeating all manner of challengers.  So great was his mastery of the blade that he had never been defeated, and in time, he became prideful and brash.

    One day the swordsman was walking down a distant and lonely road.  As he reached a narrow pass, he came across a man sitting in the road in meditation.

    “Stand aside” he said, “that I may pass”.
