Wishing you a very happy birthday, today, David!
Let me also take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity and work to make the online discussion fora (Dhammawheel.com and Dharmawheel.net) and Dhammawiki possible for all those interested in the Buddha Dhamma.
Wishing you all the best for the coming year.
With metta,
Ben

happy birthday David and a happy new year
:namaste:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Nothing less than a befitting classical repertoire just for David :sage:
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.

I pass the old Zen barrier.
Mine is a traceless stream-and-cloud life,
Of these mountains, which shall be my home?

Hi David
I wish you a very happy birth day!
I also wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I would have never progressed in my practice and knowledge without Dhamma Wheel.
Thank you for creating it.
May many merits accumulate you.

Happy belated Birthday David!!!

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah
