DhO Upgrade happening now! Stop posting until complete.


Dear All, The remarkable Manish is about to backup and upgrade Liferay to Liferay 7. This is the fundamental platform on which the DhO runs. As such, anything posted from about now (January 23, Saturday, at around noon Central Time) will likely be lost until the upgrade is complete. Thus, stop posting anything you wish to last now until this is done! Thanks! -Daniel, Owner of the DhO

I had my first experience of not-self during a retreat led by U Pandita in the early 90's. It blew my mind so throughly that I spent hours after the retreat, walking around in the Santa Cruz Mountains above the Land of Medicine Buddha where the retreat was held, trying to construct some kind of logical explanation for it.

As the Buddha said just before he died: "All compounded things are impermanent". Nevertheless, U Pandita will be missed.
