—your own, the other’s—
when, knowing the other’s provoked,
you mindfully grow calm.

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.

Can you explain how "Quaker" and "frog" are connected?
Chris

Hi Chris,
yes. In my mother tongue, the typical sound a frog produces is called "quaken" = to croak.
Now, the english 'Quacker is somehow near to german 'quaken', that's when my mind jumped there.

If you say only association within english allowed, ok, so it be :-).

"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." - Bhikkhu Anālayo
