Why Use the Phrase "THE buddha"?

Updated: Aug 19, 2020

Why do I use the phrase “THE Buddha,”

instead of simply saying “Buddha?”

It is a silly

pseudo-intellectual affectation?

Or could it be a reminder

that “Buddha

was NOT a god’s name

but merely an adjective

used to describe the enlightened state

of the monk Gautama;

a state that each of could attain

if we would but master:

compassion, and mindfulness,

and love, and letting-go!

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

and podcasts, and blogs, and class materials is supported

just like you.
