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.

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
