Homage to the Buddha
Thus indeed, is that Blessed One: He is the Holy One, fully enlightened, endowed with clear vision and virtuous conduct, sublime, the Knower of the worlds, the incomparable leader of men to be tamed, the teacher of gods and men, enlightened and blessed.

Homage to the Teachings
The Dhamma of the Blessed One is perfectly expounded; to be seen here and now; not delayed in
time; inviting one to come and see; onward leading (to Nibbana); to be known by the wise, each for himself.

Yes, he really helped me to believe that Buddhism is alive and can be lived today, with the fabulous books he wrote, and encouraged me to get a taste of it. Great man, great writer, great monk. Hope he's doing well and going to find enough seclusion from being a celebrity to meditate and find Nibbana or the Brahma heavens. The latter seem to be where he's at home already.
:meditate:
A truly admirable character.
