Dog eats offerings

This is probably how he came to be a dog in the first place…

There is a tradition of making a distinction between two different perspectives on the nature of emptiness: one is when emptiness is presented within a philosophical analysis of the ultimate reality of things, in which case it ought to be understood in terms of a non-affirming negative phenomena. On the other hand, when it is discussed from the point of view of experience, it should be understood more in terms of an affirming negation.

Yep, dogs 'll do that if you leave food lying around too long. So will some teenagers in my place. The dog usually makes less mess.

It's worth seeing the rest of the article. I laughed so much that I cried!

In the early days of Samye Ling the old house was overrun by rats...who helped themselves liberally to to puja offerings..sometimes in the middle of puja. :o

Dear 'smcj',

Thanks for the funny picture/story....in Thailand..so many Thai temples allow dogs/cats/chickens to live around ...even feed them with the left-over-almsfood.
