Hi one and all,

I'm nirmal from Malaysia.My knowledge on Buddhism is still shallow.I'm very interested in meditation and that is all I have been doing since 1993.Just read a few books on Buddhism and hope to learn more from you guys out there.Most of the time, I'm just a nut( you'll find out soon enough).Love to write poems, just simple ones.Most Buddhist are scared of me.I can hear them whispering,"There's something wrong with this guy." Sometimes I feel they are right.Ok, I'll write a poem for you

The water is on the floor
Jerry kicked the horse
But the man died
Get up,get up dead man
Quickly drink the water
Before you die.
:good:

Nirmal!!! So nice to see you here!

I adore your instant poeting. It's so... spontaneous.

:heart:

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

The path is right in front of you. Not high or far away. Right in front of your feet. Jerry got rid of moving mind, but that alone was not enough. He must get up and act in order to benefit. He must drink from Nirvana before it is too late.
