say the Scriptures, in size even as the pricking of the point of the tip of a hair not pervaded with them; and he saw them, though they were invisible to his disciples; and then when the last reverence of his five hundred brethren was paid at his feet, the pyre being ready, it took fire of itself, and there was left of his bod nike air max 1 ebay y neither soot nor ashes–only the bones for relics. Then, again, as the pyre had kindled itself, so when the body was burned up streams of water descended from the skies, and other streams burst from the earth, and extinguished the fire. Finally, my Lord, the parallel ends in the modes of death. Bodhisattwa chose the time and place for himself, and the circumstances of his going were in harmony with his heavenly character. Death was never arrayed in such beauty. The twin S nike air max 1 premium ala trees, one at the head of his couch, the other at the foot, though out of season, sprinkled him with their flowers, and the sky rained powder of sandal-wood, and trembled softly with the incessant music and singing of the floating Gandharvis. But he whose soul was the Spirit, last incarnate, the Christ”–the Prince stopped–the blood forsook his cheap nike air max 1 face–he took hold of the table to keep from falling–and the audience arose in alarm.
“Look to the Prince!” the Emperor commanded.
Those nearest the ailing man offered him their arms, but with a mighty effort he spoke to them naturally: “Thank you, good friends–it is nothing.” Then he said louder: “It is nothing, my Lord–it is gone now. I was about to say of the Christ, how different was his dying, and with that ends the parallel between him and the Bodhisattwa as Sons of Go nike air max 1 black d…. Now, if it please Your Majesty, I will not longer detain your guests from the refreshments awaiting them.”
A chair was brought for him; and when he was seated, a long line of servants in livery appeared with the collation.
In a short time the Prince was himself again. The mention of the Saviour, in connection with his death, had suddenly pr nike air max 1 red ojected the scene of the Crucifixion before him, and the sight of the Cross and the sufferer upon it had for the moment overcome him.
Part 4 Chapter 16 How The New Faith Was Received
It had been better for the Prince of India if he had not consented to the intermission graciously suggested by the Emperor. The monk with the holl air max 1 ow eyes who had arisen and posed behind his crucifix, like an exorcist, was no other than George Scholarius, whom, for the sake of historical conformity, we cheap nike air max 1 shall from this call Gennadius; and far from availing himself of His Majesty’s permission to retire, that person was observed to pass industriously from chair to chair circulating some kind of notice. Of the refreshments he would none; his words were few, his manner earnest; and to him, beyond question, it was due that when order was again called, the pleasure the Prince drew from seeing every seat occupied was dashed by the scowling looks which met him from all sides. The divining faculty, peculiar nike air max 1 sale ly sharpened in him, apprised him instantly of an influence unfriendly to his project–a circumstance the more remarkable since he had not as yet actually stated any project.
Upon taking the floor, the Prince placed the large Judean Bible before him opened, and around it his other references, impressing the audience with an ide a that in his own view the latter were of secondary importance.
“My Lord, and Reverend Sirs,” he began, with a low salutation to the Emperor, “the fulness of the nike air max 1 grey parallel I have run between the Bodhisattwa, Son of Maya, and Jesus Christ, Son of Mary, may lead to a supposition that they were the only Blessed Ones who have appeared in the world honored above men because they were chosen for the Incarnation of the Spirit. In these Scriptures,” unrolling the Sutra or Book of the Great Decease–“frequent statements imply a number of Tathagatas or Buddhas of irregular coming. In this”–putting a finger on a Chinese King–“time is divided into periods termed Kalpas, and in one place it is said ninety-eight Buddhas illuminated one Kalpa [Footnote: EAKIN’S Chinese Buddhism, 14.]–that is, came and taught as Saviours. Nor shall any nike air max 1 leopard man deny the Spirit manifest in each of them was the same Spirit. They preached the same holy doctrine, pointed out the same road to salvation, lived the same pure unworldly lives, and all alike made a declaration of which I shall presently speak; in other words, my Lord, the features of the Spirit were the same in cheap air max 1 all of them…. Here in these rolls, parts of the Sacred Books of the East, we read of Shun. I cannot fix his days, they were so long ago. Indeed, I only know he must have been an adopted of the Spirit by his leaving behind him the Tao, or Law, still observed among the Chinese as their standard of virtue…. Here also is the Avesta, most revered remains of the Magi, from whom, as many suppose, the Wise Men who came up to Jerusalem witnesses of the birth of the new King of the Jews were sent.” This too he identified with his finger. “Its teacher is Zarathustra, and, in my faith, the Spirit descended upon him and abode with him while he was on the earth. The features all showed themselves in him–in his life, his instruction, and in the honors paid him through succeeding generations. His religion yet lives, though founded hundreds of years before your gentle Nazarene walked the waters of Galilee…. And here, O my Lord, is a book abhorred by Christians”–he laid his whole hand on the Koran–“How shall it be judged? By the indifferent manner too many of those ready to die defending its divine origin observe it? Alas! What religi Nike air max 1 on shall survive that test? In the visions of Mahomet I read of God, Moses, the Patriarchs–nay, my Lord, I read of him called the Christ. Shall we not beware lest in condemning Mahomet we divest this other Bible”–he reverently touched the great Eusebian volume–“of some of its superior holiness? He calls himself a Prophet. Can a man prophesy except he have in him the light of the Spirit?”
The question awoke the assemblage. A general signing of the Cross was indulged in by the Fathers, and there was groaning hard to distinguish from growls. Gennadius kept his seat, nervously playing with his rosary. The countenanc nike air max 1 e of the Patriarch was unusually grave. In all his experience it is doubtful if the 8
