Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.

Hi Yawares,

I thought in the past I had seen photos of Thai bhikkhus showing tattoos: http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&safe= ... 2QWeq5y6DQ

I personally have never had an interest in getting tattoos but admittedly some of those religious images are very compelling nonetheless.

Glad you appreciate the photo.

And some Buddhists love animals!
“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

Hi yawares,

I understand that tattoos can be a little painful. If you don't like needles from the doctor then you might not enjoy many thousands of needles from some guy named Chuck. :smile:

Unfortunately the ocean is much too cold to stand up for very long in a small boat here. I would prefer to row that way. I could look forward! But average sea temperature is around 7 degrees C or 44 degrees F. If I fell in, in less than half an hour I would be a popsicle!
