Happy New Year

Hope everyone has/had a nice time

I shall, indeed, be napping when the change occurs.

    "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.

My two year old is having a nappy new year, but he has made a new year's resolution that 2013 will be the year that he gives them up. (Non-British English speakers might have to look this one up - I know it often causes confusion in the USA...)

For all of us, may 2013 bring happiness and freedom. I'm off to take refuges and precepts at the local monastery in a few minutes, and will include you all in my best wishes.

Happy New Year Everyone!!! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
