Hi David,
You are my elder by five and one half months. My big 50 will occur in May 2013.
I don't know where I'll be or what I'm doing - but you are invited!
By the way, my 17-year-old son, Darcy, he is very impressed with the Lotus.
I guess you could call it your "Dhamma Wheels"!!
Wishing you a very happy day. No doubt you will do something special with your family.
with metta,

Ben

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

Wow that's a seriously flashy chariot--must have been expensive. Too bad all the components will eventually decay.
I wonder if that money could have been better sent elsewhere.

Thanks Ben! Kalyana-mittas like you (and my other kalyana-mittas here at DW) are the best treasures! Far superior to any inanimate things.

Congrats, David! Let me say, first, many thanks for Dhamma Wheel. Secondly, NICE CAR! I've always admired that little Lotus, it's a sweet sports car.

As to Alan's observation. Alan, couldn't we really say this about darned near anything? If David bought himself, say, a Prius, even then people could complain that he'd be better off buying a bike (or walking) and sending the money to charity. If David bought a bike, someone would say "why get such an EXPENSIVE bike? Best to buy a cheap bike and send the money to charity."

But then, couldn't someone make the argument that living in a monastery and meditating all day is a "waste of time" and that person would be better off "helping poor people?" All of these are fallacious arguments.

Truth is, the reason we have the poor and needy is simple: Capitalism DOES NOT WORK unless you maintain a poor or needy class. This is a truth that is generally not taught at, say, the Wharton School of Finance ;) BTW, because I see the flaws and weaknesses in Capitalism doesn't mean I am a Communist! (I'm actually a Socialist, but that's another issue.)

My personal advice to David? Enjoy your beautiful Lotus in good health!

Metta

Thanks everyone for the kind words! That is enough attention drawn to me, so if you don't mind, I'll close this thread. Thanks again to all.
