He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

Cool list :thumbsup:

Metta,

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

This is an interesting thread. What follows are teachers with whom I have directly studied or whose works and teachings were a direct influence on me, and to whom I owe much and for whom I feel a great gratitude. No particular order.

How could I forget Buddha lol

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

Trungpa Rinpoche was a formative influence on me too Tilt , as was Khantipalo, and Chime Rinpoche still is.
