The Life of Uncle Togden

Post by Josef » Sat Apr 21, 2012 6:17 pm

I usually find namthar to be painfully boring but this one is by far the most inspiring and entertaining that I have read.

It's a very good and short read.

Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

Great book! A bit short though.
