Buddha and the Villager

A Story about Forgiveness

In the life of Buddha, there was a man who was abusing Him without understanding and when he finished with his abuses and Buddha had left, people told him, “Do you know who you were abusing? It was Lord Buddha.” He got the fright of his life

He said, “Where is He gone?”

“He has gone to another village.”

So he went to the other village and he said, “Sir, I am sorry for what I said. Please forgive me. It’s all wrong and I should not have done it. You can punish me the way you like.”

Lord Buddha said, “When did you do that?”

He said, “Yesterday.”

Buddha said, “I don’t know yesterday. I know only today.

    Thank you. This story perfectly illistrates the art of living in the moment. The past is gone, the future has yet to come, but the now is a gift. That is why it is called the present.
