Buddha and Brahma

By: Henry Adams

Poetry

Excerpt: The Buddha, known to men by many names - // Siddartha, Sakya, Muni, Blessed One,- // Sat in the forest, as had been his wont // These many years since he attained perfection; // In silent thought, abstraction, purity, // His eyes fixed on the Lotus in his hand, // He meditated on the perfect Life, // While his disciples, sitting round him, waited // His words of teaching, every syllable // More and more precious as the Master gently // Warned them how near was c...

The cars screeched to a halt at the boat ramp. Everyone piled out and headed for the small beach until Bob’s girlfriend reckoned there’d be eels and leeches in the river, so she refused to go down. Then the ...
