And a big thank you for all your hard work here on DW!
kind regards,

Ben

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Happy birthday chief.

Metta,

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Happy Birthday! :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.'

It's very cold here right now, actually, yes. If I were out in the mountains right now, I imagine I'd be like Bodhidharma, all cloaked up and meditating :)
