“Sasana’”, which belongs to the Pa’li term, means “teaching” or “message”. ‘Buddha’ refers to ‘ one who has learned, who has woken, and who has been exuberant or joyful’. In short, Buddhism means the teaching of “one who has learned, of one who has woken and of one who has been exuberant”. What do you know? What you know is the reality of all things about the fact that nothing is permanent. “Where there is birth, there is death”. ‘One who has woken’ is one who has stopped delusion in the attachment and adherence to all things. Then he who has no delusion becomes ever joyful. He tries to teach people to “know after him”, to “wake after him” so that they may be “joyful after him”. What is taught by one who has learned, who has woken and who has been joyful refers to “Sa’sana’” or religion, whereas “one who knows” is called the teacher or “Sa’sada’”.
