What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience."

Just a reminder for those wishing to participate in this thread that each post must refer to, and have a connected meaning to, previous one. Please see the first post of the thread on how to play.

Dear cooran,

this is from your post starting this thread:
cooran wrote:It starts with one word, and someone posts a word that it is associated with,
and then the next person posts a word associated with the second word and so on

It sais, that "someone posts a word, that it is associated with".
So, when I read a word and then another word comes into my mind that I associate it with
and I post it here and two or three persons don't get the connection,
then the game is not played right?

Is there a list of allowed connections that I can use so I can be part of the game?


Kind Regards

Hello mirco,
Can you explain how "Quaker" and "frog" are connected?
