Who is Buddha?

Who is Buddha?

There is an old Bud­dhist tale about the Bud­dha being approached by a per­son in the streets. The man asks the Bud­dha, “are you the mes­si­ah?” The Bud­dha replies “no I am not”. The man then asks “are you a heal­er?”, the Bud­dha again replies “no I am not”. The man asks this time “are you a teacher?”, the Bud­dha once again replies, “no I am not”. Final­ly out of frus­tra­tion the man asks, “well then what are you?!?” The Bud­dha replies “I am awake.”
