How Most Religious People Miss The Point
While walking one day in Deer Park in Benares, India, the Buddha came across a deer lying on the ground. A hunter’s arrow had pierced its side. As the deer slowly died, two Brahmans, or holy men, stood over the body arguing over the exact time life leaves the body. Seeing the Buddha and wishing to resolve their debate, they asked his opinion. Ignoring them, the Buddha immediately approached the deer and drew out the arrow, saving the animal’s life.
