Annapurna

Postby Modus.Ponens » Wed May 16, 2012 9:35 pm

Today is Annapurna's birthday. She haven't posted here in a long while. Anybody knows why? The funny thing is that I remembered her yesterday and now it's her birthday.

Anyway, Anna, if you're seeing this, 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.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Greetings,

It seems Anna hasn't logged in since October last year, so chances are this won't be read, but either way... I hope you're doing well Anna, and that you had a nice birthday.

:hello:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Happy birthday, Anna.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Happy Birthday Anna!


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
