A monk asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chien Paling:
-What is the difference between the meaning of the Sutras and that of the Patriarch?
The master replied:
-When it is cold, hen would go up on a tree and duck down to water.

Hi all. My name is John and I follow the teachings of the Buddha in the thich Naht hanh lineage. I'm 66 and look after my wife who has advanced multiple sclerosis. I also work as a volunteer at our local hospice day centre and have recently started a men's support group there. 4yrs ago I started a sangha which we hold in our home which is a blessing. I find the teachings of the Buddha and T N H has transformed our lives and turned tragedy into something of beauty. I look forward to being a member here and sharing our wonderful practice. Namaste John
