Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Postby bodom » Wed May 02, 2012 1:48 am

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

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Looks great, Bodom!
When I get home (in town) I'll see if I can rent it out.
kind regards,

Ben

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

You can tell he went straight into middle America too. He didn't just hit the big cities where you assume he would've had an easier time drawing support for dieting. Did not expect that all.

Look really interesting. Thanks for posting.

That documentary does sound inspiring. This transformative resolve is an expression of viriya. Healthy projects like these are supported and maintained by viriya.

I was personally inspired by this brief RSA Animates presentation from physician Dr Michael Evans:

Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.
