Congratulations Jikan on your promotion.

We have never really engaged in discussion, but as a moderator, yours has been the sensible voice that descends from the clouds.

congrats, i think jikan means time in japanese. are you aware of this Jikan and does it really mean time?
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

and thereafter lead to that state all wandering beings, not neglecting even one.
