Hi Tilt,

I can't see an image, there's just a red x in a white box.

Kind regards,

Aloka

And I can only see a white question mark in a blue box.

I saw this on FB recently Rofl
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Bah! And I was looking for Thai or Indian curries from reading the thread title...
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.

Yeah, my mind jumped to food as well, specifically dessert!
