Was Shakyamuni A Clear Light Yogin?

When he saw the morning star,
he exclaimed, "All beings' eyes are opened!
There is nobody who is not Buddha."
For a long time he just sat there --
smiling, blissful, contemplating Nirvana.
Huh. Should he go on living in the forest,
Listening to the owls hoot hoot hoot?
Or must he go back out into the shit,
padding the roads on his big bare feet,
to try and get "other people" to experience This, too?
