A role model. it's all in our minds.

Postby Modus.Ponens » Wed Feb 02, 2011 6:29 pm

Here's an inspiriing video from someone you would think that has nothing. Well, he's a very special person that's for sure and has "things" that most people don't have.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
