By His Own Assertion the Buddha Said He is Not a God

Once, the Buddha was walking down a country lane. A man saw him and noticed there was something about him that was different than other people.

The man approached him and asked, "Are you a god?"

"No," the Buddha replied, "I am not a god."

"Are you an angel?" the man asked.

"No, I'm not an angel."

"Are you a saint?"

"No, I'm not a saint."

The man stepped back and asked with a shaking voice, "Are you a spirit?"

"No, I'm not a spirit."

"What are you."

"I'm awake."
