Hiding behind the Buddha!

A metaphor

A common syndrome to some people of all faiths is to hide behind physical and devotional attributes of saintly individual souls, objectively active instead of subjectively passive, doing rather than just being. “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him” is the advice given by the sages to the unwary, showing that an inwards devotion to the unmanifest as opposed to an outwards devotion toward the manifest is the true path to enlightenment. Don’t hide behind the Buddha!
