3. Muñja grass was the ancient Indian equivalent of a white flag. A warrior expecting that he might have to surrender would take muñja grass into battle with him. If he did surrender, he would lie down with the muñja grass in his mouth. The Buddha, in asking this rhetorical question, is indicating that he is not the type of warrior who would carry muñja grass. If defeated, he would rather die than surrender.

Good morning,

I just woke up... Have we been through forum bardo yet?

We're in the bardo right now. :spy:

Apparently the webhoster and webmaster are making this a very painless and seamless process, so far. Perhaps there might be no down time . . .

We'll see in the next few hours if this is a bardo style transfer or an Abhidhamma style (instant) one. :mrgreen:

edit: It took much longer than expected due to webhosting company delays. At least posts have been restored that were made between the back-up date and when the server went down for the move.

So far, so good. :tongue:

It might be down for another short time a little later today for some more maintenance, but hopefully very short time, but we are now at the new server.

Not lost, just reborn to ākiñcaññāyatana (realm of nothingness - aka 7th jhana). :tongue:

Was able to read and reply to an old PM, plus posting here suggests all is almost well!

My time is way off also, some 10 hours or so. It will be cleared up in... time. :tongue:

What concerns me is this new server that DW is on right now. Since hosting company has been changed, this means DW is not gona move to that eco-friendly server spoked about and will continue to pollute like crazy.

I know this might be keeping you up at night worrying about that. :D

Actually, we are on the eco-friendly server right now, when the hosting company finally finished we directed the sites to them so that we could re-coup those last week's posts, but we are seriously considering going to the Amazon web hosting service which is much more reliable. Not to worry, I'll bet Jeff Bezos is eco-friendly too. If we transfer to that, I imagine the physical server will be somewhere in Silicon Valley probably being fed electric juice from a dam over there or perhaps even wind and solar energy. So you can still rest easy.
