The Buddha

One of his students asked Buddha, "Are you the messiah?"
"No", answered Buddha.
"Then are you a healer?"
"No", Buddha replied.
"Then are you a teacher?" the student persisted.
"No, I am not a teacher."
"Then what are you?" asked the student, exasperated.
"I am awake", Buddha replied.

"profound" would seem cliched but what else can one say.

The image is beautiful. i love how the light seems to fall on the cluster of buildings, but not throughout.
brilliant capture really.
