If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

Need to add Oceania. As an Australian, i had to select Asia although that is somewhat misleading.

I think you can PM a moderator and tell, wich changes he should do? :smile:

I'm from the core of the heart of Europe: middle Germany. :tongue: It's the most normal City in the middle of the most normal country. :geek: :mrgreen:
Note: I'm on holiday and probably won't read any PMs. If you have any issue, please contact another staff member.

I am teasing a little. Britain is geographically part of Europe. But its citizens are notoriously independently minded. :smile:
