  Gudo was the emperor's teacher of his time. Nevertheless, he used to travel alone as a wandering mendicant. Once when he was on his way to Edo, the cultural and political center of the shogunate, he approached a little village named Takenaka.... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: CHRISTMAS JOY IN SHARING
vertical line Posted on Dec.25.2007 @ 10:42AM EDT by kelvintan

Kindness and respect must be shown towards one another
Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it that way
Learn from painful experience in order to change our ways
Very often we light a candle than complain about darkness
Individual initiative needed to bring about social cohesiveness
Need to count our blessings and multiply our joy in sharing

Take advantage of criticism to correct faults and shortcomings
And from errors made by others a wise man correct oneself
No one can justly condemn one another due to imperfection

Strike with kindness from your heart when strike on the cheek
A true competitor can stimulate everyone here to do better
You can JUDGE YOURSELF better than let other be the judge

Conquer hearts by examples lead and we set in our daily life
Hatred stirs old quarrels, now only love bring forgiveness
In helping one another improve than hurting one another
Our shortsightedness is our greatest enemies of peace
Not until man has failed has he learned true humility
Given this OPPORTUNITY, PRACTICE patience and tolerance

Sharing my Thoughts With Everyone

It Christmas Day

With Metta

You got many things to share here.  People will be joyfull.

ChonTri, right now, does not have anything to share.  Hopefully, people will not be disappointed much.

Leading  Everyone Here In Spiritual Healing

Christ, The Lord has mercy on us

 

Having bleed and died for us

 

On the cross we have nailed him

 

Only to forgive us for our sins

 

 

 

To the Holy Cross you have redeemed us

 

Hail, Blessed Mother Virgin Mary

 

Ever full of grace

 

Refuge for your children so weak

 

Even to our needy world of today

 

Showing us the path to Heaven

 

As Queen of all the angels

 

 

 

Now we opened our heart to your Love

 

And forgive us for the lack of Love

 

Now, my soul and spirit glorifies the Lord

 

Crucified for our Salvation

 

Yet have mercy on us, sinners and weak in faith.

With Metta

To Chontri and All

Thanks, Mr Kevintan.

ChonTri is not like Jesus Christ or Shakyamuni or whoever was, is or will be.  He is just himself as a human being as long as he still lives on this earth.
