Prayers for my Thai wife's mother

Postby Quiet Heart » Fri Aug 26, 2011 3:13 am

My Thai wife's mother passed away this morning about about 3 a.m. (about 6 hours ago here in Bangkok). She was 83 and has been quite ill and bedridden for nearly a year. She passed away quietly and in her sleep.
All those who wish may offer prayers for her and her good rebirth.
I will only leave you with the thought that without suffering and death in this world, a sentient being might have no reason to begin the study and understanding of the Dharma...and at some point in their study and practice of that Dharma find release from the cycle of life and death.
And when you understand that, you will then realise that suffering and death has a purpose in the turning of the Great Wheel ofthe Dharma and is therefore a thing to be celebrated and not a thing to be taken as sadness.
Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?

Prayers. _/\_
Recognize that all the beings' flaws are unreal - mere confused and impermanent appearances, because actually the Buddha Nature is originally perfect.

May your wife's mother have an excellent rebirth, connect to the Dhamma at the moment of her birth, become liberated in that very lifetime and then lead all beings to liberation.
