Buddhas Flower Shop. . .
A woman was strolling through a shopping mall when she noticed a poster announcing a new flower shop. When she went in, she got a shock; she saw no vases, no arrangements, and it was The Buddha in person who stood behind the counter.
“You can ask for whatever you want,” said Buddha.
“I want to be happy. I want peace, money, the capacity to be understood. I want to be eternal when I die. And I want all this to be granted to my friends too.”
The Buddha opened a few pots that were on the shelf behind him, removed some grains from inside, and handed them to the woman. “Here you have the seeds,” He said. “Begin to plant them, because here we don’t sell the fruits.”
