Life As It Is

It was raining heavily and Rekha was trying to keep water out of her hutment. She had put all the pots and pans at the leaks yet, the entire thatched roof was dripping. Her two year old daughter was in the middle, lying in a second hand pram which her Madam had given her. She […]

Ruminations on Ageless Wisdom

The Buddhist tradition’s first assertion that all things are śūnya, “empty,” occurs in the Mahāyāna sutras jointly identified as Prajñāpāramitā, starting near the first-century B.C.E. Before this time the Buddhist view focused on the specific postulation that the person is empty. Professors Mark Siderits and Shōryū Katsura promulgate that the Buddhist philosopher Nāgārjuna’s Mūlamadhyamakakārikā (MMK) […]

500 Yojanas

Here again is a quote, this time from The Sutra of Contemplation of the Dharma Practice of Universal Sage Bodhisattva, that I want to set aside for future reference.

Mr. Ohh's Sideways View

Why wasn’t I informed of this earlier? Could it be a government conspiracy? Information like this needs to be available for public viewing, not hidden away for the elite few.

Little Nirvana

Had to be in London again recently for two days. I went to visit the local zero waste store called Harmless which is currently in Woodgreen. My favourite zero waste store is in Norwich but they don’t sell the Faith shower gel I get for Gary, but Harmless does. I arrived at 10am but they […]

Little Nirvana

I had made a lamp out of a bottle a couple of weeks ago. Here is another. This bottle was given to me by a member of the family. I love this demijohn especially the wooden carrier. Once again I drilled a small hole at the bottom of the bottle to feed the wire through. […]
