Will a Buddha always be Misunderstood?

Will a Buddha always be Misunderstood?

Prem Madira,
Yes, it is absolutely inevitable. It can′t be otherwise. A Buddha is bound to be misunderstood. If a Buddha is not misunderstood then he is not a Buddha at all. Why is it so? - because the Buddha lives in a state which is beyond mind, and we live in minds. To translate something from the beyond to the mind is the most impossible thing in the world. It can′t be done, although every Buddha has tried to do it. That too is inevitable; no Buddha can avoid it.
The Buddha has to say the unsayable, he has to express the inexpressible, he has to define the indefinable.
