non-violence encouraged

Received in email:
It's only when you see a mosquito landing on your testicles that you realize there is always a way to solve problems without using violence.

  1. Probably one of the best piece of dharma in recent weeks - last night I was sleeping at the balcony on a yoga mat, it's funny because the weather in South East Asia has been that arid it makes a little sense sleeping where an obvious design gap in the wall was, so that mosquito flew in and gave me a few kisses I love the ladies they are pretty obnoxious at times when they express love towards a buddhist student trying to follow basic precepts like "refrain from killing" - try telling female mosquitoes go "do something else other that kissing me, then I vaguely recalled Ajahn Brahmavamso from Western Australia who commented that's what they are supposed to do, it's wrong punishing a mosquito that is keen on kissing me, I thought about how as I age I would make a baby if a girl allows me to, that's why Testicleghatas arise on this world..

    My job, your job, their job, everybody seems to have a nice job that they can serve their purpose.

    Somebody said approximately, it isn't what the world does and do not do that is the problem, it is what i do and do not do (with my testicles and hands) that is the problem! Instead of killing a mosquito I came here whining about it.

    when they are stupid they are stupid..

    like zen teachers, like buddhist writers.. *stupid mosquitoes*
