"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.

I absolutely loved the cartoon.

I printed it out to give to a humanist friend of mine who works only with Christian fundamentalists. This is a challenge for her. The cartoon will make her smile.
