Buddha rests peacefully in gray shades between the light side and the dark side. These sides should be well-known to fans of the science fiction movie Star Wars.
In Buddhism, a person becomes Buddha if both sides are in balance. That means that they don’t suppress their dark spots but are aware of them and still act in serenity with their body, speech, and mind. See “Feeding your Demons” by Lama Tsultrim Allione.
