Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.
I saw this on the UK BBC website this morning:
Sri Lanka police dog 'weddings' condemned by minister
Sri Lanka's culture ministry has strongly condemned a mass "wedding" of police dogs which they say offensively used traditional Buddhist symbols.
Police "married" nine pairs of dogs on a platform decorated with white cloth and flowers in a ceremony resembling a traditional marriage.
The "brides" wore mittens, shawls and hats while the "grooms" wore red ties.

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.Anguttara-Nikaya: Ekanipata: Ekadhammapali: PañhamavaggaVSM VMM WBB TBHT WTBT My Page
