It was a relatively quiet day of eight precept adherence for me on Friday (the day my calendar said was Vesak).
In reality though, other than the not eating after lunchtime and the avoidance of music and entertainments, it was just like any other Friday really - a bit of meditation, a bit of Dhamma study, a bit of online Dhamma discussion.
The only other highlight was my Wii Fit balance board telling me I'd lost 2.0 kg since the previous night's weigh in... good old full moon days.
“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)
"If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today." (Thomas Sowell)
