The Devotion of Matthieu Ricard

"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. "

Yes, he really helped me to believe that Buddhism is alive and can be lived today, with the fabulous books he wrote, and encouraged me to get a taste of it. Great man, great writer, great monk. Hope he's doing well and going to find enough seclusion from being a celebrity to meditate and find Nibbana or the Brahma heavens. The latter seem to be where he's at home already.
:meditate:
A truly admirable character.
