Thanks for your take on that story Pudgala2....it makes for nice easy reading  :anjali:


"…nice easy reading"! What a pleasant surprise and I thank you. I have received two other brief expressions of appreciation for my postings and like you they have Beginner Minds. It seems the less you know about Buddhism the more comprehensible my postings become. 

I am looking into setting up a blog where I can better express my understanding of the marvelous BuddhaDharma to contemporary English speakers in the Western World. There really isn't much to it once you scrape away the sentient Buddhist crap that the ignorant piled upon it. Then you will find instructions from all the Buddhas to sit still, pay attention, and scrape away (dare I say release!) the sentient crap you've ignorantly built up in your mind and call ego.

The world will NEVER get better but YU can wash away the sins (sentient beings) of the world and be FREE of it!

If i remember correctly, the Dhammapada is about a 100 page book, how do you read all that in 1hr 42 minutes??
to me, the signs of a successful practice are happiness and a cessation of suffering, buddhism often gives me this; not all the answers.
