Happy Birthday, Ven. Indrajala! I have learned a great deal from your comments here and your blogs. Thank you for sharing the gift of the Buddhadharma and your insights. (I also appreciated your comments about veganism BTW.) May you bring happiness to countless beings! :smile:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Venerable! May all of your aspirations be fulfilled! Live long and benefit all!
今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Our life is very simple, very direct, very beautiful, very vast and very terrifying, but it is not at all convenient.

:namaste:
Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them
