Branding and Buddhist Institutions

No holds barred discussion on the Buddhadharma. Argue about rebirth, karma, commentarial interpretations etc. Be nice to each other.

An empty box can't tell time.

A better proper Zen alarm clock is just a piece of incense or sun/moonlight.

I'd go with the empty box. Because really, there is no time to tell, time itself is starting to look like a meaningless convention, if you follow the development in physics over the last few years.

"Do not block your six senses; delight in them with joy and ease.
All that you take pleasure in will strengthen the awakened state.
With such a confidence, empowered by the regal state of natural mind,
The training now is simply this: lets your six senses be at ease and free." - Princess Parani
