Turn off your mind…

.. relax and float downstream… it is not dying, it is not dying.

Every minute of every day, we deny ourselves opportunities to experience reality, which is always present but obscured by the projections and confusions that are due to our previous unskillful actions.

Why the Tibetan Book of the Dead is not taught in schools I do not know, for that is why we are really here… Even John realised that and penned a song for his generation 50 years ago – perhaps he shouldn’t have been so self conscious… what was he afraid of?

Funny how everyone knows Tenzin Gyatso but ask them what he stands for and they’ll tell you ‘peace’… though he is actually much more than this. He is considered to be a metaphorical manifestation of Avalokiteśvara – a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas.

Yeah, stick that one in your pipe and smoke it…
