New Year Reading

If you need a bit of feel-good reading right now (and who doesn't?) please have a look at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/arthur-rosenfeld/pay-it-backwards-an-act-o_b_151793.html which is really well worth reading and thinking about. And did you know that two Buddhists have just been elected to Congress in the US? Read about this and the controversy surrounding it at http://stevensonblog.tuscaloosanews.com/default.asp?item=397872

Unfortunately, one of those two Buddhists is a "non-practicing Shinto", and the other belongs to the Nichiren sect.

Bhante,
It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

I feel a sense of shame in me. I don't think I would be so mindful to react in such a gracious manner. My little ego is so big, that wisdom disappers in sudden aggravation.

Plenty to learn, plenty to cultivate.

Dear Vegan27,
Thanks for the extra info.

The first article was very nice and inspiring. Makes you reflect about how you would have acted, or reacted, yourself...
Thank you for sharing venerable :)
