Nathan,

That's why I bother sifting through the tedium, to find a post like what you wrote.
It makes me think I'm not as tragically alone on the path as it would seem.

Maybe I'm a fundie schizophrenic. Or maybe I've found a form of dharma that's legit and I'm just doing the work.
Either way I have to face tomorrow and I'm not going to change the way I do it.

With warm regards and mundita,
Drolma

Sorry for my part in being off topic. I'm all for scholarship, it's really cool. Especially when people do it for altruistic reasons.
But sometimes it's nice to find a yummy post that speaks to the reality of the path. With the traditional teachings in mind.
Seeing the teachings unfold in the world around us, and our own inner world.

So, how are the views of Buddhadasa Bikkhu regarded?
I think since we have a living, breathing, and posting student of his among us, we ought to be picking his brain.
With respect.

Kindly,
Drolma

Well said, Drolma! Well said!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

But whoever walking, standing, sitting, or lying down overcomes thought, delighting in the stilling of thought: he's capable, a monk like this, of touching superlative self-awakening. § 110. {Iti 4.11; Iti 115}

Santikaro asked me to post this...

--

Sorry to duck out before answering zerotime's jit-waang questions. Now in a different city, I can only get online thru a friend's machine but forgot my DW password & for some reason the system isn't sending it to me. This renders me unable to post & I leave for retreat in just a little bit. May y'all have pleasant abidings.

nathan,

If it is too much right now to deal with these people then you might want to consider taking a break from "free-for-all" forums like this one. Stick to the "classical" forums. That's what I do from time to time when these folks just become too much for me to handle.

Perhaps i am schizoid, but have never found any problem with sitting comfortably ( metaphorically ) with Ajahn Buddhadhasa AND Ajahn Chah.

I found a couple of articles Santikaro had written which I liked, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any more anywhere?
