Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

Guess what? I got the attendance list of a Dhammakaya event. Well, not exactly Dhammakaya event, but WFBY event. Then again, what’s the difference?

Besides, their schedule says that at 9am on 13 Feb will be “Openning Ceremony at DKF/BYLT Program”. (English is not their strong point, but they are good at marketing and politicking.) On the next day (Magha Puja), the program shows that the activities are at Wat Dhammakaya. I suppose they are expected to worship the spaceship, and maybe the pyramid too. There's also lots of award giving on the following day. Maybe that's the attraction to the international Buddhist 'leaders'. Awards! How sweet!

Here’s the list. (To the moderator, please don’t censor this. People need to know who are getting involve and unwittingly getting their members into a known Buddhist cult. Please.... Besides, it's not a secret meeting. The press will surely be invited.)
