Happy birthday, Ben. May this be a year of peace and prosperity. And body joints that still function like a young man's.
"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Happy Birthday, Ben! :smile:

Here is a present. I hope you enjoy:

"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.'

"Happy Birthday to me, Happy birthday to me. Poor fellow, he doesn't realise he is one step closer to his grave!"
Paraphrased from Goenkaji, because I couldn't find the quote online anywhere.
And Happy Birthday!
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
