I am on the path, however not yet advanced. Any opinions or insights I share are meant entirely for discussion purposes and in cases where people might find them beneficial in whatever way. Since I am not advanced on the Path, I cannot guarantee that what I say will always necessarily be 100% true or in line with the Dhamma. However, having had an extremely interesting life with a wide variety of different (many of them deep) experiences, I hope that anything I share will be of use, provide food for thought, and inspire interesting and beneficial discussions.

Mettā to all! :anjali:

I have made several changes to some of the text and the design, including fixing the arrows and position of the text so that the diagram seems less cluttered and more organized (to the English version only).

Is this what you meant by colour-coding?

I suppose I have a few points, since that color really helps give the eyes a base of operations when scanning the piece:

1. You've written "karma" when maybe "kamma" would be more consistent.

2. For example, the five precepts box goes to five destinations, but otherwise just hangs down there; perhaps the five things being pointed to receive their own color, and then the legend on the side says "that color = precepts". This might help trim out some of the arrows, but may be of limited usefulness throughout.

3. Maybe the various b i u effects could be used to some effect; the triple gem could be bolded and put in all-caps, freeing up that color for #2 above, etc.

In any event,

:thumbsup:
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

Just an idea, maybe somewhere add:

This is, because that is.
This is not, because that is not.
This ceases to be, because that ceases to be.


And if you don't add that, maybe somebody can let me know how to say that in Pali?
Sotthī hontu nirantaraṃ - May you forever be well.

I won't put it, but you can find it here: ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outline_of ... C4.81da.29 )

Imasmiṃ sati, idaṃ hoti.
Imass’ uppādā, idaṃ uppajjati.
Imasmiṃ asati, idaṃ na hoti.
Imassa nirodhā, idhaṃ nirujjhati.
