  One day a Vinaya master asked a Zen master:
-How should one practice Tao?
The Zen master replied:
-Eat when you are hungry, sleep when you are tired.
The Vinaya master said:
-Most people do that.
The Zen master... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: EQUANIMITY
vertical line Posted on Jun.07.2007 @ 11:44AM EDT by Pendragon
On the basis of the belief that all human beings share the same divine nature, we have a very strong ground, a very powerful reason, to believe that it is possible for each of us to develop a genuine sense of equanimity toward all beings.

-His Holiness the Dalai Lama, "The Good Heart"

vertical line A man went to a priest.

"Father, I want you to say a Mass for my dog who died."
"What do you mean, say a Mass for your dog?"
"It's my pet dog", says the man, "I loved that dog and I'd like you to offer a Mass for him."
The priest says, "We don't offer Masses for dogs here. You might try the denomination down the street. Ask them if they have a service for you."
As the man is leaving he says to the priest, "Too bad. I really loved that dog. I was planning to offer a million pounds stipend for the Mass."
And the priest says, "Wait a minute, you never told me your dog was Catholic."
