Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Very similar in style to Wat Buddhapadipa in Wimbledon in London.
If you use the word 'mind' without defining your terms I will ask you politely for a definition. :smile:
This is not to be awkward. But it's really not self-explanatory.

Nice temple, beautiful grounds, I've seen videos of this place before. It has temple replicas of all the important places of Buddha's life: birth, first teaching, enlightenment, parinirvana. At the 6 to 7 minute mark he walks right by the Maha Bodhi Temple replica, apparently not understanding the significance. (Based on the narration, it appears he is not a Buddhist.)

I posted this because it shows the four replicas and it was more accessible to people because it is in English (there is another video in Thai). It would be a good place to do a pilgrimage to in Florida.

It also shows that little shrines can be constructed in very limited space.

:thumbsup: retreat and/or meditation pilgrimage, especially for those who can't make the long trip to India. That's one of the reasons I had a small outdoor MBT replica made at my place.
