Lee, you've gotta learn to lighten up, man.......
I was just kidding you.
Nobody's kicking over any rice.
All's well in the Buddha Hall.
Manjusri actually is in shorts and a tee
sitting on the grass
in the garden playing with the
cutest little kid he and Ava had about a kalpa ago.
Maybe a future Buddha, the kid has never once said
a disparaging word about anyone.....
even about those pesky westerners
filled with their materialistic emptiness and blind love.
Less lecturing from on high about "concepts"
and more conversation about real practice
as you and I and everyone here
meet it every day,
(like a dog dying,
being both horrible to bear
at the same time
with a pure feeling of love
between human and dog)
is what I thought this site was about.
It's what I look forward to reading about,
