"Drinking from a human skull"  :  Completely grossed out, he was astonished to discover how powerful his mind was. He quickly awakened to the fact that the difference between a refuge or a nightmare was determined solely by his mind.

Excellent point.  One of the lessons to be learned during survival training is that excellent sources of protein and carbs, which ordinarily would repulse us, when realized to be life-saving, suddenly become savory. :pray:
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
