Buddha has said again and again: “I am like a swan, a bird in the sky. I leave no footprints. Hence you cannot imitate me, hence there is no need to bother to imitate. Understand — that will do.” Listen, feel, imbibe the spirit of a buddha, that’s all. Be nourished by his presence, be thrilled by his being, but don’t try to imitate. Don’t try to become a carbon copy, because God loves only originals; carbon copies are rejected.
