Kleptomaniac me

I admit having this one "stolen" from Nerdine

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.
Here it is:

"And what would happen to the Buddha when he died?"

Hmm, let me give you the sixt sentence as well:

"We don't know why but apparently in the days of the Buddha quite a lot of the disciples, and quite a lot of members of the public, were very interested in in this last question."

I feel like retyping the entire book but I prefer you read it yourself (if you like of course)..

It is called "Who is the Buddha" by Sangharakshita who is a Buddhist master that teaches the ancient wisdom in a modern western oriented way. I haven't read it yet, just unwrapped it for this bogpost as it was given as a present and still laying next to my chair :-)
