Greetings bhante,

Happy jati day.

Happy birthday!
Is there any celebration to mark birthdays at your monastery?
In Perth we would get toast for breakfast, as a birthday present! A great luxury.

birth is suffering
Born, become, arisen – made, prepared, short-lived
Bonded by decay and death – a nest for sickness, perishable
Produced by seeking nutriment – not fit to take delight in


Departure from this is peaceful – beyond reasoning and enduring
Unborn, unarisen – free from sorrow and stain
Ceasing of all factors of suffering – stilling of all preparations is bliss

As Ajahn Chah might have said, "True but not right!"

Birth might well be suffering, but this is a birthday. :heart:

Correct, but it does have its advantages. One of them is that we learn what is appropriate to say on people's birthdays.

Happy Birthday Bhante :anjali:
And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

This was the last word of the Tathagata.

I don't think learning comes through aging. This idea was levied at the Buddha when he was newly-awakened & still young...

Happy Birthday Bhante!

:namaste:
The heart of the path is so simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice.

Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing.

Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this-just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle.
