I am not the 5th or 9th reincarnation of a great lama, I have not recived any empowerments or initiations, I am not the holder of any lineage, I am yet to attain any of the jhanas, I am not a widely respected teacher, I am not a stream enterer (at least I don't feel like one)and I do not have many disciples. Nontheless, you may find some of my observations and musings interesting. I have been a Buddhist monk for 32 years and am the spiritual advisor to the Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society in Singapore.
Thanks for this Bhante. I learnt to sing this in high school - it's got a lovely tune. I'd always thought the last line was "... and laugh, and love and live" and not "... lift"?
thank you Bhante. The words came at the most appropriate time for me.
