The Buddha never moves

The Buddha said to Subhuti, “Subhuti, if someone says that the Buddha comes, goes, or lies down, this person doesn’t understand the principle of my teaching because the Buddha neither comes from somewhere else nor goes anywhere else.”

Student: “Where is the Buddha now?”

Master: “He is where He used to be.”

Student: “Why can’t I see Him?”

Master: “Why can’t I avoid seeing Him?”


Invisibility is not the evidence of His absence but that of your blindness.
