Lots of smiles -
Warning: posted before coffee
"However after coffee we might start with the 3 Noble Truths . . .
Existence is joy (yep don't expect that to be true for a few hundred years yet)
There is a party
Well, who doesn't like a party? Hmnnnnn: party / suffering : party / suffering : party / suffering: somehow, I think the party will win.
From a Buddhist perspective maybe we are all on "Double secret Probation."
Warning: contains foul language - but is REALLY funny.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18eaNSxh ... ure=fvwrel
"Hello mother, I knew it was you", is a line from a song that might apply to the "new 3 kayas" picture. The picture actually does remind me, a little, of my old lady friend, Kaya, before coffee: three Kayas - the mind boggles!
Lots of weird stuff in the world. Actually think that the picture might be from the Central Park, NYC, Summer flash / dance /rave event where there is a free circus of 100 acts, like this, to wonder at. Discovered the rave while walking around the park with Charlie Morley, after attending one of his excellent Dream Yoga courses, which took place in the park.http://www.charliemorley.com/
But to restate a possible before coffee topic:
How do we recast Swedish Chef Buddhism into recipes for tasty dishes, to the liking of all sentient beings, and make a feast that is permanently renewable and can feed everyone?
Perhaps "someone" could contact the heads of all Buddhist groups, and ask them to contribute to an introductory practice wiki, to be hosted on the web. Maybe this could be a new section on DW.
Putting aside all doctrinal formulations / preference, and concentrating on practices, would allow new comers to get a taste of Buddhism from within each group's frame of reference, and then decide which path they would like to explore further. A taste of individual experience, according to the practice style of each group, could be each individuals practical take away from the practice wiki. This could then lead to contacting the various groups / lineage holders - taking transmission, as applicable, memorizing the Tripitaka, Mahayana Sutras, Kangyur etc. and going to retreats and seminars for a few lifetimes.
This is the party. Any Swedish meatball (tofu) recipes out there? https://www.google.it/search?q=swedish+ ... 46&bih=564
