Q. What Do We Value, and How Much?

A. It has to be truth, above all other.

If we value ‘this’ and ‘that’ above our true nature,
then we are caught in a realm of trivia,
and are of no use to anyone!

Wisdom is more important than life itself.
Without wisdom, everything is worthless.

Truth is beauty.
Beauty is truth.
Form is emptiness.
Emptiness is form.
Gate gate para samgate bodhi soha…
Gone gone gone beyond…


With words

May the hearts of all beings melt into kindness and joy.

    Hello Tony, amen to that. If you take your blogging to these heights, there is no need anymore for discussing 🙂 On the other hand, you post provides many food for meditation. Like, for example, on the meaning of this small, simple prayer..
