Hi Drolma,
You're a spring chicken next to me!
I'm in the next oldest age group.
Kind regards

Ben

I wouldn't be extremely surprised if this is the least truthful Poll I've ever seen. Interesting, that in the West, people aren't valued as they grow older, and there is a tendency to lower the age.
I'm in the group above Ben. :smile:

edited for clarification: i.e. the group older than Ben's group

Drolma I'm sure you don't look older than 26


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.

Beautiful, great avatars, Drolma and Manapa!

At my age, I pull back to a much further wide angle so that the picture is not so clear. :tongue:

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.'

To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

well established, restrained

always centered, the monk

You aren't the only one, Orbiting-Awareness. :D

I am eighteen. I will be heading off to Reed College this autumn.
I do not want my house to be walled in on sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.- Gandhi

With persistence aroused for the highest goal's attainment, with mind unsmeared, not lazy in action, firm in effort, with steadfastness & strength arisen, wander alone like a rhinoceros.

Not neglecting seclusion, absorption, constantly living the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, comprehending the danger in states of becoming, wander alone like a rhinoceros.
