Baby Buddha vs. adult Buddha.
Do you think babies have the right to vote for president? If children had the right, they might vote just like throwing the dice. That’s why we do not give the right to vote for the president to babies. When babies grow up to become adults, they naturally have the right to vote. How long does it take for a baby to get the right to vote for the president in the states? It takes about twenty years. Babies are still buddhas, but they are baby buddhas. So it takes time to grow into our role as an adult Buddha.
