Yes, of course. As Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche said, "Until the inner force of negative emotions is conquered, Strife with outer enemies will never end."

Is exercise an important part of your day?
Just as the trunk of an ordinary tree
Lying in the forests of the Malaya mountains
Absorbs the perfume of sandal from the moist leaves and branches
So you come to resemble who whomever you follow.

Yes, for my mental stability, meditation is a very important thing in my life. But in my days i often do some work or sit in a bus while meditating.

Are you still a Christian too, besides being a Buddhist?

No, but I haven't tried it. I don't like the idea of doing that to perfectly good spaghetti.

Did you enjoy the last hot dog that you ate, which was made out of spam, wrapped in bacon and then deep fried, dipped in chocolate, and served with whip chream and a cherry on top? Be honest, and remember, Yes or No...

Unless I'm going to put the book 3 inches from my face, yes. I basically need glasses all the time...

Did you do anything special today in observation of Parinirvana Day?

Yes. Sat for a little longer meditation session.

Have you ever worn a button shirt buttoned all the way to the top when the temp. was over 85 F (30 Celsius), i.e., not for keeping warm, but as a 'fashion' choice. I notice some golfers do this even when the temps are quite hot.

God question! No!!!
But i like to accompany a friend who used to swim in wintertime in a lake nearby. Good temperature for him: + 2°C
Well covered with tuque, scarf, wintercoat and warm boots i stand aside watching how he beats a hole into the ice for to take a bath.

Do you keep animals?

No (they don't frequent the waters near Southern California that much, which is where I go for the beach or ocean swimming)
