Thank you Bhante for your contributions here at DW!
“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

Thank you venerable. By the way, do you know anything about former bhikkhu Santi, now Kester (iirc)? He posted one or two messages as a lay man on websangha and then I never saw him again :( .
"He turns his mind away from those phenomena and, having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.' " - Jhana Sutta

Oh, thanks a lot, I did not notice myself that it has been 3 years already.

Still "seeking" I guess... (gavesanto)


P.S. Kester is now a layman studying in England. Some other old faces from E-sangha and Websangha days seem to have disappeared.
