A grieving mother approached Buddha, carrying the body of her dead child in her arms. She begged him, I know you can bring him back to life. Buddha replied, Death is inevitable; I cannot restore his life. The woman was devastated, and was not prepared to accept this answer. Seeing her pain, Buddha said, I can bring your child back to life, but only if you bring me mustard seeds from a person who has never had a death in his family.
