How Gautama Buddha Transformed a Murderer into a Sage

101 people he will kill people said don't go this way this is an animal gautama said if i don't go who will go he said rubbish you are definitely an insane man then gautama said you must go into the town from which you have killed 100 people it happened that there was a man his original name we forget the name that people gave to him is angulimala [Music] something happened to him he felt the society has been unfair to him became an angry man [Music] you know when you're young you think and everything is unfair to you so he became very angry with the society and he took a wow this town which hasn't been unfair to him he is going to kill 101 people 101 people he will kill and he will cut each one of their thumb and wear it as a rosary around his neck a garland of fingers or thumbs [Music] so he went about doing this people were terrified to go this way he's housed in a jungle but this is the pathway to go to many other places people got killed over a few years he killed 100 people he just wants one more to satisfy his last so one day gautama buddha came to this town so by now because he's wearing a garland of these fingers they call him angulimala that means one who wears fingers as his garland he just needs one more finger for him to complete his wow [Music] gautama came and he was to go that way people said don't go this way this is an animal this is not a man this is not somebody who can go and give teaching or make a meditative just don't go because just one more life he wants we don't want yours to be that one gautama said if i don't go who will go and he will remain unfulfilled he just needs one more finger if i do not go who else will go let me go so he went angula mala was sitting on us on a rock he saw this monk coming quietly by now he's enjoying his reputation people are terrified of him he likes it just the mention of his name people tremble he's beginning to enjoy it so sitting there on the rock he rode just to make this monk now that i am here and this is your end coming gautama looked at him kept walking with a smile on his face quietly he didn't like this [Music] usually when they see him or when they hear him people run health or skelter wanting to save their lives he likes that this man is just walking he didn't like it he jumped off the rock and came and stood in front of him he said who the hell are you and do you know who i am he showed his mala all fingers oh and you know about me gautama said well i've heard a lot about you what about it and he kept walking where do you think you're going you're still going when i'm talking to you gautama said i stopped going long time ago my going stopped long time ago i have arrived you are the one who trying to go somewhere when angulimala laughed he said rubbish you are definitely an insane man i am standing still you say i'm going you're walking and you say you're not going what's wrong with you he said no no i have arrived long time ago i'm not going anywhere you're the one who's trying to go somewhere but you don't know how to go there you want my finger or you want my neck hang my head as a pen i know as a pendant you got fingers you can hang my head now it'll be a good pendant for the necklace because i'm done i've arrived it doesn't matter whether i'm physically here or not you can do what you want see the pleasure of this killing is only when you're terrified and you don't want to die when someone wants to die and they don't care how what's the use of killing this guy and it looks like even if you kill this guy your lust for 101 lives will not be fulfilled because this guy doesn't give you the pleasure then he said wait you tell me what is this about you're moving and you're saying you have arrived and you're not moving i am not moving and you say i'm moving you're looking for fulfillment in your own way 101 i am fulfilled it's a big difference and you can take my life if you think you're going to be fulfilled do it because this is my work to fulfill people if it's going to happen so easy that without a teaching just by slashing my throat you're going to be fulfilled just do it what's the problem [Music] became his tar disciple [Music] and gautama said you must go into the town from which you have killed 100 people in a small town 100 people means almost every family has lost somebody to this man so he made him into a monk gautama's monks were called bhikkhus bhikkhus means beggars literally so he gave him an hello cloth and a begging bowl he said go look for some food in the town so angulimala came into the town as a monk people saw this and they were terrified we don't know what they don't know why he has come they all went and stood on their terraces because they're afraid what he will do then when they saw he's become tamed he's not the same fierce man then started throwing stones at him because each family has lost somebody to him so he continued stones hit him he was bleeding all over then and when it became stone throwing became little in excess and gautama came in asked the people to stop upset this is not the same man this man is an extension of me you're throwing stones at me just stop there's no point killing this man because this man in a very hard way has come to realization you can't waste this man now by killing him and angulimala became as i said a star disciple went all over the country spreading buddha's way of teaching you know living and knowing so it doesn't matter what kind of fulfillment you're looking for you think it will happen with education or at least you thought the moment you got educated you felt like a fool if i don't have a job what is the use of this education you got a job you felt great then after some time you felt like a fool what do i do with this money if i don't find that my dream man or dream woman that happened after some time you felt like a fool this goes on the desire is [Music] simply to expand that's your desire if you choose physical material ways to expand you can go that far or that form or that form but still little will be designed yes if i make you the king of this planet you will look at the other planets if i give you the solar system you look at the galaxy if i give you one galaxy you will look at the other galaxies now what you're looking for is not this or that you looking for expansion if you look at it consciously you will become yoga yoga does not mean twisting and turning you will come to union with the rest of the creation if you do it unconsciously it becomes compulsive desire that's all [Music] you
