- Jan 26, 2007The Buddha gave 84,000 teachings. If you do not believe that and only subscribe to the First Turning doctrines, there was still much wisdom imparted upon his disciples, wisdom they had yet to develop. To compare an overflowing cup of tea with a beautiful, overflowing spring of dharma wisdom is to make an erroneous comparison. The Buddha's mind is overflowing with dharma, perhaps the analogy of the Master pouring the cup over was not to point out that the excited student was overflowing with idiocy, but to congratulate him on never tiring of Dharma.As the Buddha said to Shariputra in the AryaSanghataSutraDharmaparyaya:"It is good that you do not tire of Dharma teachings. If the Tathagata can never tire of Dharma teachings, what need is there to say about ordinary beings?"Sonam TseringAs long as space remains, as long as living beings remain, until then - may I too remain to dispel the sufferings of the world. - Master Shantideva
