One of his students asked Buddha,
"Are you the messiah?"
"No", answered Buddha.
"Then are you a healer?"
"No", Buddha replied.
"Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted.
"No, I am not a teacher."
"Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated.
"I am awake," Buddha replied
Well, "Buddha" means "the awakened one"--that is, someone who has woken up from the dream of being a separate ego in a material universe.
Gautama Siddhartha taught for forty-five years. In all those years, and in the hundreds of thousands of teaching words that he uttered, his message was simply this:
"You are all Buddhas. There is nothing you need to achieve. Just open your eyes."
The goal of Buddhism, like any self-respecting spiritual path, is not to have titles or to make distinctions between degrees of holiness; it is to wake up.
