"The first sermon of the Buddha had no words. There was no lofty perch upon which he stood, no crowd of people awaiting his sermon. The first teaching the Buddha gave was the way he walked into the marketplace. Upon seeing him and the way he moved, people thought, I want to walk like him, and they became his students." - Daniel Levin
