Was he not also somewhat famous for playing the saxophone as a pastime, I think?
子念昔貧,志意下劣,今於父所,大獲珍寶,并及舍宅、一切財物。甚大歡喜,得未曾有。
The son thought of past poverty, outlook humble, now having from father a treasure harvest, also father's house, all his wealth. Great joy - to have what was never before had.

Τῆς πατρῴας, δόξης σου, ἀποσκιρτήσας ἀφρόνως, ἐν κακοῖς ἐσκόρπισα, ὅν μοι παρέδωκας πλοῦτον· ὅθεν σοι τὴν τοῦ Ἀσώτου, φωνὴν κραυγάζω· Ἥμαρτον ἐνώπιόν σου Πάτερ οἰκτίρμον, δέξαι με μετανοοῦντα, καὶ ποίησόν με, ὡς ἕνα τῶν μισθίων σου.
Your fatherly due I withheld unthinking, in evil I wasted your wealth; a prodigal cries, "I've erred, father, receive the repentant as serf."

It's a sad time for Thailand. As the steadying influence since the 1940s, he will be sorely missed.

Entertainment has been cancelled for 30 days. This was the vigil before his death.

Būmibalapmahā rāja dead and Mahāparinibbānasutta

Post by theY » Thu Oct 13, 2016 11:26 pm

Now, in thailand, it is like a time in mahāparinibbānasutta.
Status on facebook of my friends, are about my king.
It is a time we lost an idol who can give his whole life and family to his people.

Unfortunately, it took the death of this great man for me to learn about him. May the Thai people be strong in these times.

Adapted from the late His Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej's royal literary work: The Jataka Story of Mahajanaka

From video description:
1 in 500 preceding life regarding Buddha Jataka stories the particular Account regarding MAHAJANA life regarding buddha, Gautama Buddha

The particular Jātakas (Sanskrit जातक) (also regarded in some other dialects since: Burmese: pronounced: [zaʔ tɔ̀]; Khmer: ជាតក [cietɑk]; Lao: ຊາດົກ sadok; Thai: ชาดก sadok) talk about the voluminous body regarding books native for you to Indian with regards to the preceding births (jāti) with the Buddha.

These include the particular reports of which notify around the preceding day-to-day lives with the Buddha, in the two man and also pet kind. The long run Buddha can take place inside them as a double, an outcast, the goodness, an elephant—but, in whatsoever kind, he / she demonstrates many virtue the account thereby inculcates.

Within Theravada Buddhism, the particular Jatakas are a textual section with the Pali Cannon, within the Khuddaka Nikaya with the Sutta Pitaka. The term Jataka also can talk about a regular comments for this ebook.

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

will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

This talk by Ajahn Amaro is a nice encouragement to use King Bhumibol's life as a source of inspiration.

We near the end of the mourning period, one year on from his death. It's a very touching time for anyone with Thai connections...
