colours

Hey Moderators
Please tone down the colours of this site! I need sunglasses to look at this and it is not very attractive or soothing to the eye! 8-)

I rather like the colors, but then I suppose a dull grey goes with everything.

They seem fine to me also. Yet the orange-yellow spectrum would not suffer from being a little less intense.

Red, yellow, orange: bright colours as opposed to some of the neutral colours found at most forums + the blue and white of the texts = The Buddhist colours (including the flag). :geek:

Greetings,

I like the colours.

Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

Neither traceable in the Discourses nor verifiable by the Discipline, one must conclude thus: 'Certainly, this is not the Blessed One's utterance; this has been misunderstood by that bhikkhu — or by that community, or by those elders, or by that elder.' In that way, bhikkhus, you should reject it. (DN 16)

Hey, that's Goenkaji with the Bhikkhusangha!
Where did you get that photo, Retro?
“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.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
