"I Am Awake!"

Shakyamuni Buddha held meetings like our SGI meetings.  People would ask questions and everyone would say what they thought.

Because Shakyamuni was so wise, some people got confused. They thought HE was the thing they should worship.

At one large meeting, someone shouted, "Are you a god?" 

Someone else yelled, "Are you a saint?"

Shakyamuni answered, "I am awake."

Thatís what being a Buddha means.
