He is the teacher for those ready to be tamed.
what about those beings that are not ready to be tamed?
i ask this question?
Gena1480: I could be wrong, but in what I have read of the suttas, the Buddha never really chases after someone. He makes himself available for teaching and debate and if people don't come, or they don't get it then that is their problem. Some people walked away in anger after talking to the Buddha because of this.
Where compassion comes in is in making the Dhamma freely available, just like the Buddha did. With this you can help any who are able to be helped. But it is important to stress that only those who are "ready to be tamed" will be able to receive the help. Maybe one day those who were not ready to be tamed will be, in another life. But for now it is best for us to concentrate on helping ourselves and those who are really dedicated, and to preserve the dispensation for a long time out of compassion for future generations.
