Dreaming in the Food Court

Rinpoche then mentioned with a mixture of sadness and compassion, “When you don’t think of the next life … people are wandering, like in a dream, believing 100% the dream is real! Like in a illusion or mirage … believing it’s all real.” (Rinpoche was watching the people walking around very focused on the shops and shaking his head.) More here

I love Taipei's night markets. I wish all of samsara really was as good as this.

The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

You should spend more time frolicking in Taipei's night markets then.. instead of wasting your time working on liberation from samsara..

then you can spend life after life.. thousands and tens of thousands of lifetimes being reborn and dying again and being reborn again just to enjoy all the delicious illusionary food found in the night markets..

The photo reminds me of Chiang Mai's wonderful night market. People from around the world, exotic vendors, wai-ing Thai merchants. Thai food and Chang :cheers: .

Yes, purestsoul, it is samsara, but really good samsara.
