"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

I just thought that Alexander S had assumed you were refusing to answer him, as opposed to describing the vow. ;)

oh jeez - I feel slow. LOL... I didn't even catch that, I just didn't understand the (Alexander S) response... :namaste: Divisive speech is indeed the vow I was referring to.

I would also like to know what's with the clay pot analogy then?
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.
