A Simple Question?

Originally posted on Endless Light and Love:
I pose a very simple question to all readers of this blog and to all your followers too. If all religions team peace, then why can’t all religions achieve peace? Is it not time for us to put our differences aside and come together just as our religions…

Some Thoughts on Rebirth

I’m a member of a couple of different internet forums on which subjects pertaining to the practice of Buddhism are discussed, often debated, and occasionally argued about. It is interesting to watch the most heated of these conversations and realize how little input I really care to have on them, but tonight I’m going to […]

A Timeless Elephant Parable

Once in a while I come across something which is so oddly profound to me that I can’t help but share it. I’ve read this story before, what I’ll call the parable of the Blind Men and the Elephant, but I came across it again recently and have learned a little more about it since. […]

Support the Nuns; Disappointing Responses

I spend some of my time each morning reading on a couple of Buddhist forums. Generally I find these forums to be very supportive toward my practice, but occasionally even these can result in disappointment. Yesterday someone posted a link to a rather peculiar site which is advertising 7-days of Ajahn Brahm’s time in exchange for being […]
