Equinimity

“In these moments, Gautama Sâkyamuni Buddha comes to my memory. On a certain occasion, the Great Buddha was seated under a tree in profound meditation when an offender arrived, and cast his entire defamatory mud against Buddha; he tried to hurt him tremendously with words. Buddha continued meditating, but the offender continued provoking, insulting, hurting him. Much later, Buddha opened his eyes and asked the offender: ‘Oh, brother, if someone brings you a gift and you do not accept the gift, whose gift does it become?’ The offender answered; ‘Well, mine, it is obvious.’  ‘Then,’ said Buddha, ‘brother, take away your gift; I can not accept it.’ And he continued meditating.”
