Happy Birthday! :)
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Happy Birthday, Ven. Dhammanando & Adept!

:woohoo:
Sīlaṃ balaṃ appaṭimaṃ.
Sīlaṃ āvudhamuttamaṃ.
Sīlamābharaṇaṃ seṭṭhaṃ.
Sīlaṃ kavacamabbhutaṃ.


Virtue is a matchless power.
Virtue is the greatest weapon.
Virtue is the best adornment.
Virtue is a wonderful armor.

Theragatha 614


Sabbapāpassa akaraṇaṃ,
kusalassa upasampadā,
Sacittapariyodapanaṃ,
etaṃ buddhāna sāsanaṃ.


Refraining from all wrong-doing,
Undertaking the good,
Purifying the mind,
This is the teaching of the buddhas.

It's funny how we celebrate birth yet birth is the source of our misery.

Life is just a moment. Then there is another one and another one. Until rooted out there is lobha, dosa, and moha, which means dukkha in those moments and the sowing of bad vipaka for the future. So my aim is no more moments eventually. If there "was in the past" is just a moment now of deluded thinking and craving. There have been nice times in my life but they never happened to a "person" and the "past" is just conceptual construct. It is gone. It is not an ultimate reality here and now to be known. The citta and cetasikas that arise while conceptualizing "past" can be known as they are. That is how I see the picture.
