Happy Birthday Eric Lubbock

Postby David N. Snyder » Tue Sep 29, 2009 9:20 pm

You're not going to believe this, but here it is anyway:

I was looking all through Bhante Dhammanando's old posts at e-sangha today, looking for a post he made over a year ago about an English politician who is a member of the House of Lords and is a Buddhist. I finally found it and then made a Dhamma Wiki article about him. And then as I gathered the info about him to make the article, I noticed today is his birthday!

Holy cow, just a coincidence I guess or he was contacting me in some voodoo way. :tongue:

Happy birthday to Eric!
I hope he is an inspiration to Buddhists in the west to aspire for public office.

Happy Birthday Eric
he is the parton of the Buddhist Prison Chapplancy in the UK Anguillimala based at the forrest hermitage in Warwick.
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.
