Legend has it that Buddha was once asked about the meaning of life. “To be awake”, he replied.
I was at university when I first read this story, and Buddha’s simple but startling response fell like a wash of ice on my slumbering psyche. I resolved thereafter to live my life as consciously and wilfully as possible, according to the values I held dear, without caring too much about the fashions of the day.
