Not Far From Buddhahood

"And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. . . Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself" - The Gospel According to Saint Matthew, Chapter VI, 28-34.

Gasan said: "Whoever uttered those words I consider an enlightened man."

"And I say unto you, Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and we shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." - The Gospel According to Saint Luke, Chapter XI, 9-10.

Gasan remarked, "That is ezcellent. Whoever said that is not far from Buddhahood."
