Happy Birthday David! Thanks for all you have done.
If you believe certain words, you believe their hidden arguments. When you believe something is right or wrong, true of false, you believe the assumptions in the words which express the arguments. Such assumptions are often full of holes, but remain most precious to the convinced.

Thanks David for all you do to support Lord Buddha's teachings.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

We normally celebrate my birthday on Christmas since the office at our business is closed (actual birth date is Dec. 26 at 1 am). We needed a new car in our household since we have a new driver soon with our daughter learning to drive, so since this was the big 5-O, we decided to get a yellow lotus with a customized license plate:

The Mahayana spelling "Dharma" was already taken but I prefer the Pali spelling anyway.

Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas
Equanimity is the ground. Love is the moisture. Compassion is the seed. Bodhicitta is the result.

-Paraphrase of Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tsephel citing the Guhyasamaja Tantra

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

Dear David,

So today it's your birthday...well HAPPY BIRTHDAY again and I love your new COOL LOTUS...the color really matchs your shirt!!
Is the car for your daughter? ...oh I bet she jumps up/down with joy...lucky girl :twothumbsup:

Dear David.... Oh please don't forget to answer my member's question about LIST # 462-# 463...here's the question:
List no. 462
The Nine Jhanas (meditative absorptions, sometimes listed as the Four Jhanas and the formless realms):

1. Delightful Sensations
2. Joy
3. Contentment
4. Utter peacefulness
5. Infinity of space
6. Infinity of consciousness
7. No-thingness
8. Neither perception nor non-perception
9. Cessation
(from Anguttara Nikaya 9.36)
------------
(Quote) Hi Tep,

you wrote:

( D: question whether the 4th jhana includes as well rupa and arupa jhanas ,i.e.
Jhana 1-4 rupa + jhana 4 = 4 a,b,c,d arupa. 9 arupa but not jhana anymore.)

T: I think the 4th jhaana is still a ruupa jhaana, Dieter. What do you refer to
as " 4 a,b,c,d arupa."?

D: I can't remember to have read about the 5th, 6th,7th Jhana
so I assume entering the 4th Jhana includes all rupa Jhana and in its
perfection arupa Jhana , i.e. lik 4 a, b , c,..

>D: D.N.S. quotes A.N. , pls check the Pali , I am a bit far from my usual
sources ...

T: Okay. I have the Pali for you below. Beyond the first paragraph I do not see
any other useful information. Help is on the way from David Snyder since Yawares
will ask him to explain!
AN 9.36 PTS: A iv 422 Jhana Sutta: Mental Absorption

D: yes, good to ask him . As it seems , what appears as a quotation of the
sutta is an incorrect interpretation .

with Metta
Dieter

If you want to answer here...that's fine, I can copy and post at my SD.

Thank you very much,
yawares

Happy Birthday David.

I guess this means that now you are one of the few Buddhists who can drive a car in full lotus position hm?
