The futility of samsara

Postby Kusala » Tue Oct 15, 2013 1:47 pm

"Through the round of many births I roamed
without reward,
without rest,
seeking the house-builder.
Painful is birth
again & again.

House-builder, you're seen!
You will not build a house again.
All your rafters broken,
the ridge pole destroyed,
gone to the Unformed, the mind
has come to the end of craving"
Dhammapada, Verses 153-154

Homage to the Buddha
Thus indeed, is that Blessed One: He is the Holy One, fully enlightened, endowed with clear vision and virtuous conduct, sublime, the Knower of the worlds, the incomparable leader of men to be tamed, the teacher of gods and men, enlightened and blessed.

Homage to the Teachings
The Dhamma of the Blessed One is perfectly expounded; to be seen here and now; not delayed in
time; inviting one to come and see; onward leading (to Nibbana); to be known by the wise, each for himself.

Hi Kusala,

thanks for sharing that inspiring video. This story sounds authentic, as there are far too many people involved in it for it to be faked, imo. Interesting. Maybe you could post it in the rebirth debate thread :tongue:
