The Chocolate Chip Cookie Sutra
Thus have I heard: One day, the World Honored One was baking chocolate chip cookies.
His disciple Ananda came into the kitchen in disarray, saying “I have been speaking with a man of the Hindu persuasion, who has the most outlandish ideas. I have tried to dissuade him of his false, corrupt, destructive, and seductive views. His beliefs will lead him to harm himself. His beliefs will lead him to harm others. His beliefs will lead him to be reborn in the realm of animals, Blessed One, or in the realm of the hungry ghosts, or in the Hellish Realms.
“He would not listen to your teachings. What should I do?”
The Blessed One said, “Have a chocolate chip cookie.”
Comment: As I write these words, I have a pan of cookies in the oven. I wish you could smell them, I wish you could taste them.
