Buddhist Stories

30 Kushan Buddha

I really appreciate that Buddhist lore includes a story that Buddha couldn’t charm his cousin into not trying to kill him out of greed and jealousy (though he could charm the elephant sent to kill him into chilling out and being peaceful).

And another where Buddha couldn’t stop a war that his clan brought on itself that wiped them out.

But Buddha tried anyway.

 

 

Kind of rings a bell, doesn’t it?
