USA has a unofficial, but still popular 'holiday' of April Fool's day, where practical jokes are played on the innocent. April 1 is the date.

Well my dear Will, it is an age old tradition here in Greece too! You have just been April fooled on a rebound off Andre Honores April fool! :smile:

"Do not block your six senses; delight in them with joy and ease.
All that you take pleasure in will strengthen the awakened state.
With such a confidence, empowered by the regal state of natural mind,
The training now is simply this: lets your six senses be at ease and free." - Princess Parani

Hi Anders,

Good one -- although I have to admit, the Osho stuff sort of gave it away for me. I know you would never fall for that. :smile:

As 1st April has now passed and to prevent any misunderstanding regarding the content of the OP this topic is locked.

Thanks Anders for a really good laugh :lol:
