Re: Uposatha Observance Club

Happy uposatha! For those interested and so-inclined, I always find it particularly beneficial to offer Sangha-dana on the uposatha. Wishing you all a fruitful observance.

Re: 30 hours without any sleep and counting

Re: 30 hours without any sleep and counting

Stefan,

I think you should contact your therapist (if you have one). You may be having a manic episode (I'm no professional though). Please contact a mental health professional and stay away from stimulants in the interim. Wishing you every good blessing, health and peace!

He was never a good businessman. That's clearly part of the problem.

Re: Your Guide to Inauguration Day 2017

The size of yesterday's marches made it pretty clear just how unpopular Trump is. Thank goodness the majority hasn't been conned by a mendacious, self-serving, xenophobe.
