A Parable for Today
One day, the Buddha visited a village to teach. As he sat and people gathered around him, an angry man walked into the circle and began to curse the Buddha. He called the Buddha a thief and a liar and a great many rude words.

The Buddha just smiled at the man. Finally, exhausted, the man left.

"Why did you say nothing?" said one of his disciples.

"If a man brings you a gift and you refuse to accept, who leaves with the gift?" the Buddha asked.
