Ching Ch'ing, a Chinese Ch'an master, asked a monk:
-What is the sound outside?
The monk answered:
-That is the sound of rain.
The master said:
-Sentient beings are upside down, they lose themselves in pursuit of things.

There was outrage last year when video footage of the wedding of one of the Generals charge daughter, Thandar Shwe, was posted on the internet. It showed the bride handing out diamonds to guests, shouting: “They’re real!” – in a country where many people do not have enough to eat.
Quote: "What do you have in common with yourself? Tell us!!"
I have nothing in common with “myself”. My self is a reflection of my delusions, attachments and anger. I am truly just the film of tissue between one side of emptiness and the other side of emptiness. If I do have any mass it takes the empty form of a compassion transmission. To be empty is to be full. MU
