Sunday 31 October 2010

Posted by The Coach on October 30th, 2010

Be a lamp unto Yourself

As the Buddha was dying,  Ananda asked who would be their teacher after death. He replied to his disciple –

“Be lamps unto yourselves. Be refuges unto yourselves. Take yourself no external refuge. Hold fast to the truth as a lamp.  Hold fast to the truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves. And those, Ananda, who either now or after I am dead, Shall be a lamp unto themselves, Shall betake themselves as no external refuge, But holding fast to the truth as their lamp, Holding fast to the truth as their refuge, Shall not look for refuge to anyone else besides themselves, It is they who shall reach to the very topmost height; But they must be anxious to learn.”

Quoted in Joseph Goldstein, The Experience of Insight.

    1hr 35min MTB Ride on some local trails, including 14 x 2 minute hill repeats, with equal recovery.

    Finally got our bikes out of the shed & serviced so we could go for a leisurely 40 min ride around the suburb today…was rather enjoyable except for the flies 😀

    Does chainsawing trees, removing weeds, filling a mini skip and replanting a garden count as leisure? Awesome weekend doing all of the above 🙂
    Plus, I won a photography challenge – stoked!
