A posting by a 'juvenile senior citizen'

Do not click on this link if you are not amused by juvenile humor that is beneath someone of my age and standing. It is a funny -- in my opinion --, but it is a bit of a profane acceptance speech for LOTR which doubtless will not be to everyone's taste. Here is a chance to practice restraint.

And if you do not like, you were warned, so no complaining.

"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."
