    Anonymous tradition


    Namaste Vaj and all:

    I have two contributions, from an anonymous source.

    The first one:

    If you have wealth to build a mansion, go live in a hotel.

    Anonymous



    The second one is from the same source , but the thought is of no connection with the first:

    In college I had a classmate in one subject on Southeast Asian politics. He was a naughty fellow and told me about the national anthem of Siam. He recommended to me to sing the first line several times everyday, which I do up to the present:

    Oh-what-an-ass-Siam, Oh-what-an-ass-Siam

    Mother's love

    I don't know about Aikido, except that it's some kind of martial art.

    Anyway, if I may: please be reminded, Aikido masters and enthusiasts, that all love is analogous to a mother's love for her child.

    Call up your mommy now and say "I love you, mommy."

    If I may, Vaj, I would like to make a comment:

    "That's why man has landed on the moon and now will land on Mars."

    I wonder if Conrad would be excited were he around today.

    A page from a journal of modern experimental physics will be as mysterious to the uninitiated as a Tibetan mandala. Both are records of inquiries into the nature of the universe.

    LOL, incorrect, simplistic and shallow but nonetheless amusing. ;)

    Two very good Buddhists

    Thanks, Zenmonk.

    If I may, and dispense praise:

    You and Vaj are two authentic Buddhists.

    If there is one just man..., here we have two.

    PS I assure you I still have a lot of amusing posts coming, which I hope will not exhaust your Buddhist calm and composure for being incorrect, simplistic and shallow.{/i]

    Exhaust it, that's what it's there for. And you knew two of the three qualities I mentioned about the posting already, as you well know. As for amusing posts - keep them coming, it takes my mind off my stiff legs. ;)

    Zen Saying

    Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
    spring comes, and the grass
    grows by itself.

    True bliss

    Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
    On a full stomach, that is bliss.

    When the world is in accord with the Tao,
    fast horses are left to fertilize fields.
    When the world is not in accord with the Tao,
    war horses are bred in the countryside.

    There is no greater fault than ambition,
    no greater curse than discontentment,
    and no greater sin than greed.
    The one who is contented with contentment shall always be contented.


    -- Laozi
