I am wholly thankful.
Thank you Jundo.
Incompleteness - Wholeness -
Thank you Jundo. Made me think of a poem I read recently and it seems to fit.
Subhuti recalling a poem by Buddha:
"Whole body like a mouth, hanging in space
Not asking if the wind is east, west, south or north.
For all others it speaks equally, it speaks prajna.
Chin ten ton ryan chin ten ton." ( represents the sound of a windbell)
Thank you Jundo for all you do...
Thank you Jundo, Gassho.
Deep bows to you Jundo, thank you.
Thank you Jundo
btw, that was neat how you scheduled the helicopter fly over,very effective
Thank you, Jundo.
That was truly wonderful, Jundo!
Jundo did not schedule the helicopter to come - he conjured it up! Zen Masters have super powers!
That was my first pick but knowing what a humble zen master we have; I didn't want to blow his cover

I think it has to do with building our Zendo on the air route between two military bases. A good re-minder of war and peace.
Thank you Teacher.
Thank you Wholeness,
Thank you for this teaching.
Thank you Jundo. A great direct teaching.

Thanks for sharing the whole Sutta. I enjoy it very much. I'm not sure that the Buddha is saying Nirvans requires one to be dead.
Thank you for your post Jim. I feel much the same way you do.
Try as I might, I can't keep from watching the news (and feeling a little bit frustrated more often than not). However....despite the "bad"
I have enjoyed reading everyone's stories this week. I guess it is time to now share my own.
As I've said before, I am a quiet, introvert
