Ha... Ben just gave you someone else's cake.

I hope it was received with permission, and not taken by way of a precept breach.

:jumping:

Happy birthday, chief.

Metta,
Retro. :)

It's in awfully good condition for a cake that just fell off the back of a truck...

No sexism read into it, Chris!
Fairy floss just isn't the same if its not coloured pink!
Pink coloured metta is very cool!

Happy Birthday! :smile:
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.'

Happy Birthday!

: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.
