Happy Birthday, Ven. Indrajala! I have learned a great deal from your comments here and your blogs. Thank you for sharing the gift of the Buddhadharma and your insights. (I also appreciated your comments about veganism BTW.) May you bring happiness to countless beings! :smile:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Venerable! May all of your aspirations be fulfilled! Live long and benefit all!
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Since buddhas and sentient beings are inseparable and the same, it is necessary to respect all sentient beings as being on the same level with the buddhas. Can you?

Happy Bday a couple late!!!

Thank you for all your help my friend and I hope it was a good day and will be a blessed year.

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
~The Buddha~
