A Poet introducing himself
« on: October 28, 2016, 02:08:07 pm »
A poet to buddha
A question as an answer, as an answer that is a question
It is why, a baby is like an oldman starting releasing his wisdom layer by layer
It is why, an old man is reborn a again wisdom for wisdom
I have seen you writing a poem into life, as i see you writing life into a poem
that is called wisdom

A kind gesture to your poem, my dear buddha

Hi, Poet.

Another Poem


"Buddha,
Please sojourn in samsara,
'tis my request. ",
Asked The King of The Brahmas,
The very best.


"To devas and humans,
Teach The Dhamma,
Penetration and  understanding,
With loving kindness, compassion,
No melodrama."

"Show the way to unbinding,
And release,
The Noble Eight Fold Path ending suffering.
All dissatisfaction to cease."

"Gather-up Simpasa leaves,
In but one hand,
Show calm with rake,
Comb the sand."

From Nepal  amongst Sakyans,
To Middle-East with The Kurds,
Amongst Nipponese and Chinese,
With Water Buffalo herds.

Vietnamese, Ceylonese,
Tibetan and Sri Lankin,
Yogi's, Kalamas,
Tigers, Lamas and Brahmins.

Teach The Dhamma to one,
Teach dhamma to all.
Sit cross-legged,
Meditate from Spring till the Fall.

"Burma Shave!" :hug:

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.
