Buddha’s self

An artist had been commissioned by the King to paint the Buddha. After many weeks of continuous work, the artist proudly presented es portrait to the King. The King exclaimed: “You haven’t painted anything!” The artist replied: “Indeed, the Buddha has no self.”
When the Buddha saw the portrait he smiled and then chided the artist: “I see your self all over the painting!” The artist replied: “Indeed, my self also is the Buddha!”
