Greetings,

Thanks everyone. I took the day off work yesterday to spend with my family, given that my wife had a day off work... it was really nice and low-key.

Metta,
Paul. :)

And now, after that, a very merry unbirthday to you

... and many more to come until next year!


This unBirthday, as just seen here, happens to coincide in this year with "Ānāpānasati Day", the full moon day on which the Buddha taught the Ānāpānasati sutta.

Happy breathing! :geek:

Happy belated birthday retro! :heart:
"People often get too quick to say 'there's no self. There's no self...no self...no self.' There is self, there is focal point, its not yours. That's what not self is."

Ninoslav Ñāṇamoli
Senses and the Thought-1, 42:53

"Those who create constructs about the Buddha,
Who is beyond construction and without exhaustion,
Are thereby damaged by their constructs;
They fail to see the Thus-Gone.

That which is the nature of the Thus-Gone
Is also the nature of this world.
There is no nature of the Thus-Gone.
There is no nature of the world."

Nagarjuna
MMK XXII.15-16
