DhO Hacked and Upgrade

General

ATTENTION!: It appears that our server has been hacked through this version of Liferay, meaning it is no longer secure, and so expect instability as we deal with this and attempt to upgrade to Liferay 7, which we failed to be able to do last year the last time the team attempted it, but we have no choice at this point, so bear with us as we try again. Save any long posts in a text file before posting them. You can follow me on Twitter at @danielmingram for updates if the site is down. Apologies for any complexity this causes. We will work as fast as we can. We have backups of the database, so hopefully nothing will be lost. Thanks to all helping with this complex process.

Nice find, thanks for sharing emoticon

EDIT: Today I've probably had my first anatta-gate fruition, and it was exactly like this:




except that the fish was the buzz of a fridge in the next room.

Art is the only way to convey an experience from one person to another and I love enlightenment art. I wish there were more stuff like these.

One of my big recent openings and "enlightenments" came from meditating on a Zen poem and a painting. But I digress. 

Good stuff.

(I encourage enlightened beings on here to continue enlightening us with art)

I heard of this tragicomic encounter several years ago. At the same time it is hilarious! 

Dialogue across different spiritual traditions is fraught with
obstacles, even within a shared Buddhist heritage. Over the thou-
sands of years since the death of the Buddha, different schools
have evolved in their own unique ways. Typical of the pitfalls was
a meeting in the late 1970s between a Korean Zen master and a
respected Tibetan rinpoche. The meeting had, of course, been set
up by their Western students in hopes of fostering an exchange
between two lineages long estranged. The Zen master began with
a Dharma challenge. Holding out an orange, he asked forcefully,
“What is this!” The Tibetan master sat in silence and continued
to thumb through the beads of his mala. The Zen master asked
again: “What is this!” The rinpoche turned to his translator and
inquired softly, “Don’t they have oranges in his country?”

Quoted from Amaro Bikkhu's book, Small Boat, Great Mountain.
