BobtheBuddha: Remember the good old days? All those glorious struggles, the epic successes and the glorious defeats?
BorattheBuddha: Yes I remember them perfectly actually. It was awful.
BobtheBuddha: Well yes it was, sometimes, but there were those amazing moments like your first kiss, and mastering Chopin, and fresh water after a hard days' work. Good old days they were.
BushtheBuddha: Dukkha, all dukkha, you can't just sit there being nostalgic about it!
BobtheBudhha: I suppose you're right. Still and all I remember some grand sunsets. So how are you doing, George?
BushtheBuddha: Perfect of course. We're all perfect, remember?
BorattheBuddha. Yes. Perfect. Blissful. Serene. At complete and undisturbed peace with all things.
BobtheBuddha: Yes indeed. Perfect. Quite perfect. All tasks completed, all maras defeated, all mantras recited. Done. Finito.
BobtheBuddha: So, has anybody read any good books lately?
The mundane man's mundane perception of enlightenment.
