Actually, I adopted the jackal avatar during one of my interminable "discussions" on e-sangha about the appropriateness of the word hinayana.

”Your Majesty, why should one who follows the path leading to supreme enlightenment, who is like the lion, king of beasts, salute those who follow the Hinayana, who are like jackals? -- A Treasury of Mahayana Sutras, Garma Chang page 116.

Greetings,

Ah yes, that explains a few things.

Good to see you don't have the mange. ;)

Metta,

Thanks. Right now I am tilting at windmills on another unnamed forum, defending the faith, but hope to put more energy here, soon.

Hi Tilt

Please don't do anything that will cause you any discomfort.
Better to spend time with no one rather than to spend it with fools.
Anyway, its good to have you here!

Bigger fleas have smaller fleas,
And little fleas to bite 'em.
And little fleas have littler fleas...
And so, ad infinitem!

Actually "Ad Infinitem" is not accurately pronounced 'ad infi-night-em' but 'ad infi-neat-em'
so maybe a better rhyme would be 'and little fleas to eat 'em', but it's an old poem and who am I to discuss semantics and split hairs?

Oh hi, Tilt, howya doing?
