Buddhist jokes

A buddhist gives a £10 note to a hotdog vendor and says,
“Make me one with everything…”

When the vendor offers the buddhist his change, the buddhist declines, saying,
“Change must come from within.”

How many buddhist monks does it need to change a light bulb?
None, because change must come from within.

Change is inevitable, except from vending machines.

Why can’t the Buddha vacuum under the sofa?
Because he has no attachments.

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Asking this question denies your own chicken nature.

A buddhist goes to the dentist but declines pain relief – he was trying to transcend dental medication.

    • Looks good to me.
      The example of Shaolin monks is instructive here: a pacifist religious group who are also masters of deadly martial arts.
      Contradiction and paradox are found especially often in Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism.
