Cold weather death toll in Greece, Ukraine,...

Cold weather death toll passes 100 in Ukraine.

Eastern Europe's freezing weather has hit the poorest hard, particularly in Greece.

A state of emergency has been declared in the south of Serbia - where deep drifts have blocked roads and cut off electricity supplies.
Temperatures have dropped as low as -37C in some areas.

Rest in natural great peace this exhausted mind,
Beaten helplessly by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.

look around, others are our other legs, arms, our own Being; care for shelter, blankets, bottles of hot water, food.........
