Re: Football World Cup.

I'm watching on Telemundo and didn't catch what the commentators said, nor do I think my Spanish is good enough to identify what they said, but wasn't that penalty situation actually an offside right before? As in, the play that made the situation where the penalty occurred, should've been an offsi...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

I stopped thinking of myself as a would-be 'advanced practitioner' or as a less 'advanced practitioner' about the same time as I stopped pretending to be a Tibetan.
Whats left?

The River Thames at high tide. The hills of Surrey in the rain.
Same as it ever was.

Re: ahimsa and pest control

:thumbsup: That was exactly the situation Aryjana. As I said there less than a month before the inspection. Starving them out was not an option given the timeframe. There was good reason to suspect that the local authority was out to close the place. Scotland in those days was a hotbed of Presbyteri...

Re: ahimsa and pest control

A true story. When CTR was abbot of Samye Ling he inherited a large colony of rats that came with the building. Most of the time the humans and rats coexisted, although they (the rats) often stole foodstuffs used in pujas. But around that time it became clear that the local authorities were taking a...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

I use a calendar I bought online because I like the pictures.
I stopped being a pretend Tibetan about the same time that I reverted to my birth name.
Its all just more stuff to clear away.

I was thinking of having a trim tomorrow, but I don't want eye pain..no siree.

I'm not sure that seeking punishments by divine means..whatever that means.. is much better.

I thought there were glimpses today of what Brazil could be. Hopefully, that will happen during this present tournament.

Re: Football World Cup.

As the parent of an aspiring footballer, we are all football mad in this house watching every match. While the Oranje are my team generally, with them out I am really happy to see Belgium firing on all cylinders. Hazard and Lukaku are in phenomenal form. Could this be the year they make the final? ...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

My hair cutting days follow closely an auspicious alignment between the car being available for a short trip to the next town and the Turkish guys that run it opening the shop. Subtle cosmic vibes also result in a free coffee and, when I pay, a piece of Turkish Delight on a toothpick. Om to all that...

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

How would a description of those experiences, out of a context of a relationship with a teacher and out of particular Buddhist meditative disciplines help you?

Re: Football World Cup.

Pretty sure Argentina won't advance. Talk about failure. Yeah, one loss and one draw for Argentina; it's not looking good for them. Lionel Messi has 5 Golden ball awards, an Olympic Gold medal, over 600 goals in world-class competitions, just about every kind of Football award one can get . . . exc...
