"But," asked Vaccha persistently, "when one who has this emancipation of mind (freed from self) dies, where does he go, where is he reborn?
The Buddha replied:
"The word 'reborn' does not fit the case."
"Then he is not reborn?"
WHEN THE BUDDHA USED A LITTLE STICK
One day when the Buddha was sitting on grasses in a grove, a little deer came about very close to him and showed its friendliness. The Buddha first was> dearly to the little deer a little bit, then he grasped a little stick next to him and suddenly gave the little deer a little hard hit at its butt. The little deer got hit, scared, and running off as fast as it could. The Buddha then said: "Little dear, I just didn't want you to get killed by a hunter."
