"But," asked Vaccha persistently, "when one who has this emancipation of mind (freed from self) dies, where does he go, where is he reborn?
The Buddha replied:
"The word 'reborn' does not fit the case."
"Then he is not reborn?"
I HAVE NOT SAID A WORD

From the day when he was totally awakened to last day when he passed away, it was about 45 years long, the Buddha was walking everywhere he could around the land of India and teaching what he knew to anyone who needed to be awakened like him. At the last moments, he said to the ones around him something like this:
"In 45 years now, I have not said a word."
Why did he say so?
