" A good traveller has no fixed plans,

and is not intent on arriving "

Lao Tzu

The Next Buddha

August 5th, 2008

“It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual.  The next Buddha may take the form of a community – a community practising understanding and loving kindness, a community practising mindful living.  This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.”

Thich Nhat Hanh.

  1. Hm, beautiful 😉

    (and immediately I was thinking of the Glastonbury Summer Gathering this year, but would not want to claim buddha status for us, as I think you didn’t intend to either, if that makes sense.)

  2. Aha.***Yes, and yes, and YES!
    And responding to Sonja, you may be right in your instinct, what if there was a group in the process of *becoming* a collective Buddha? Mmm…Food for thinking.
