S&F for starting this thread. What question to pose!
I think he would be confused and hurt to see how far mankind has strayed from the need to provide the basics of life. He was a wealthy prince who
left his charmed life behind to go among the poor and sick and learn how the rest of the world existed.
For the most part, our modern society is all about material stuff...who has what and how big is it compared to mine. He may even pity us for the way
we have become.
Remember he became a simple man, albeit one who loved eat, but was happy to share kind words and good deeds. I think we could use a good dose of
Buddha today. Just my two cents worth, I would like to hear the thoughts of others.
