December 16th, 2012

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

-The Buddha

“The World-Honored One Ascends to the Rostrum”

One day, the World-Honored One ascended to the rostrum. Manjusri struck the

table with the gavel and said,

“Contemplate clearly the Dharma of the Dharma-King! The Dharma of the Dharma-King is like this.”

Thereupon, the World-Honored One descended from the rostrum.
