He Ain't Heavy, He's My Buddha!

Happy Friday!


"One day a young Buddhist on his journey home, came to the banks of a wide river. Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him , he pondered for hours on just how to cross such a wide barrier.

Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river.

The young Buddhist yells over to the teacher, "Oh wise one , can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river"?

The teacher ponders for a moment, looks up and down the river and yells back, "My son, you are on the other side".


Q: Why don't Buddhists vacuum in the corners?
A: Because they have no attachments.


Q: What did a Buddhist say to the hot dog vendor?
A: Make me one with everything.


Q: How many Zen buddhists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Tree falling in the forest.


Q: Why are there so few Buddhist rhythm and blues bands?
A: Because Buddhists don't have any soul.
