‘I Am Not The Buddha’

Dharma Chakra Mudra
Sarnath Museum, 450 CE


‘If someone would for a hundred thousand eons constantly look at the Tathagatha Without relying on Ultimate Reality but only seeing the World’s Saviour that person is attached to Form and enlarging the Net of Ignorance and Illusion Tied up to the prison of Birth and Death Deluded, he does not see the Buddha.’

The Avataṃsaka Sūtra [Around 100 BCE; also as the Mahāvaipulya Buddhāvataṃsaka [Flower-Ornament] Sūtra]

‘I am not the Buddha’. A Self-Negating Expression of-course. Naturally. Necessarily.
