Would you feel tired if you traveled 100 miles in a BMW car
or would you feel tired if you had to walk on the road in the hot sun, perspiring,
dusty, with your body aching? Which would you prefer?
Do you cry if somebody takes your toy? Are you unhappy if somebody
takes your favourite pen, book or stopped you from doing what you like? Are
you afraid when your Mom and Dad leave you alone at home? Do you get angry
when your sis knocks off your favourite television program?
All this is because you don't follow the advice of the Buddha. The Buddha
is the most kind, most loving, most generous, most understanding and the most
knowing Teacher and Friend the world has ever had. He was a Teacher and a
Friend not only to all of us but also to the gods, to the animals and all
He taught us the way to be happy, to be kind, to be caring and sharing and
the way to make others happy. He taught us the way not to be frightened, the
way not to cry and the way not to be jealous and angry, because when we are
frightened, angry or jealous we are unhappy. But when you are kind, caring
and sharing, helping others, you are happy and everyone around you is happy.
You always have friends where ever you go, whether you are at home or in another
So all that the Buddha has taught us is called the "Dhamma." Being
in Dhamma is like going about in a BMW. When you go about in a BMW, you don't
feel tired at all, you are happy, comfortable and confident. Likewise, when
you are in Dhamma , you do not feel tired at all, because your mind is happy,
forgiving, kind, generous, helping everybody, all human beings, animals, etc.
When you are in Dhamma, you will always have friends where ever you go.
