"Buddha" means "the awakened one"--that is, someone who has woken up from
the dream of being a separate ego in a material universe. Gautama Siddhartha,
whom we affectionately, [mistakenly], call the Buddha, taught for forty-five years.
In all those years, and in the hundreds of thousands of teaching words that he
uttered, his message was simply this: "You are all Buddhas.
There is nothing you need to achieve. Just open your eyes."
