Bhante, what do other monks think about December 21st-- do they take the possibility of some catastrophe seriously?

Hi Viscid,

Wouldn't have a clue...it's not a topic I've given much thought, one way or another, and just found the photo a bit humorous...haven't broached the subject with anyone...reading the news,whether it's one day, or the long haul, we're doomed anyway...

Be well...

I didn't even think of the Mayan nonsense when I saw the OP, but of this:


:coffee:

Then again, maybe I've been spending too much time recently smiting the unbelievers over at the other DW. :thinking:

Love how Saturday is blank...good find, Bhante.

Good call on The Cure, Dave. First thing to pop into my head before I clicked.

Just another beautiful sunny day in remote Tasmania.
“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.

What I do not really understand about us is this. We are so much worry about the end of the world, which is not certain.
But we do not worry about our certain death!

What would you do now -- if the world were really going to end tomorrow, that is only a day remains to practice Dhamma in this life?
