Mellow Buddha

I think the Buddha was probably a pretty chill guy. I mean, he'd pretty much have to be, right? A real mellow type, that Buddha. Sure, before he escaped those palace walls he might've lived a different life, but once he was on the path towards enlightenment, he just seems like a mellow fellow.

Every time I visit a Buddhist country, I seem to learn more about the Buddha. It's not planned, it just happens. You hear the same story over and over again at different Buddhist temples and monasteries, and pretty soon it's in your long-term memory. I think we could all benefit to be a bit more mellow, especially in today's super-connected hyper-news climate. It sure is nice to just relax once in a while.
