Happy Birthday David N. Snyder!

Post by Ben » Thu Dec 26, 2013 1:02 am

Wishing you a very happy birthday, today, David!
Let me also take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity and work to make the online discussion fora (Dhammawheel.com and Dharmawheel.net) and Dhammawiki possible for all those interested in the Buddha Dhamma.
Wishing you all the best for the coming year.
With metta,
Ben
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

happy birthday David and a happy new year
:namaste:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Happy Birthday Dr. S! Anumodana to you for all of your work to share the Dhamma!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Of these mountains, which shall be my home?

and now for something somewhat different:

>> Do you see a man wise [enlightened/ariya] in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.<< -- Proverbs 26:12

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

Happy Birthday! :smile:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Hi David
I wish you a very happy birth day!
I also wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I would have never progressed in my practice and knowledge without Dhamma Wheel.
Thank you for creating it.
May many merits accumulate you.

perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
