May she totaly recover her health. May she be free from suffering and be happy.
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.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Wishing you the very best, Louise.
You're never far from my thoughts.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

could you pray or chant for me?

Post by sattva » Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:58 pm

i am having quaduple bypass surgery, probably sometime this week. I will ask a friend here to post time, date, and length of the sugery. For those who feel so inclined, I would appreciate any prayers or chanting done during the surgery in me behalf. Thank you. I am including a photo (terrrible one lol) of me squinting in the sun. Look so darn rugged in it, but it is current)
Love and good wishes to you all,
sattva louise

Sattva,

PM me your full name and I'll include you in my daily practice. May you be free from pain and suffering! May you be well, happy and peaceful! :heart:
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
