“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

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

We marked the occasion just a few hours ago, by circumnambulating the sala and buddha statue three times, then everyone put their incense and candles into the bowl of sand outside, in front of the statue.

Then WOOMPF! 200 incense sticks plus 50 candles suddenly reached flashpoint and the whole thing' burst into flame, much to the delight of the small boys who were otherwise bored stiff with all the chanting.
Entertaining!
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
