Very close to Buddhahood

A Buddhist master was once asked by a student, “Have you ever read the Bible?

“No,” said the master. “Why don’t you read it to me?”

“‘Do not worry about tomorrow,'” read the student, “‘for tomorrow shall worry about itself.'”

“That man was enlightened who said that,” commented the master.

The student read further: “‘Ask and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asks receives, and he that seeks finds, and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.'”

“That’s great stuff!” exclaimed the master. “The writer of those words is very close to Buddhahood.”
