My first attempt at tackling a Spanish-language Fake Buddha (or “Buda”) Quote. Unfortunately I don’t speak any Spanish, but a reader sent this along today:
“Todo lo que te molesta de otros seres, es solo una proyección de lo que no has resuelto en ti mismo.”
He didn’t include a translation, but Google Translate offers up:
“All that bothers other beings is just a projection of what you have unresolved in yourself.”
I assume that Google has for some reason not translated the “te” (I may not know Spanish but I know French and studied a little Latin in school) and that this should actually be:
“All that bothers you about other beings is just a projection of what you have unresolved in yourself.”
Please let me know if I got that wrong.
This quote reflects a very modern psychological perspective, and the language is far too contemporary for this to be a quotation from the time of the Buddha—sorry, “Buda.”
