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.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Happy birthday Eric,

May you become a Wheel-turning Monarch!
