from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi

This blog included. "So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them. Buddha - Kalama Sutta

  4. I can't get over the size of the room and how few students, let alone that they all seem a little older than usual. he must have loved it.

    Thanks, cleaned up a little. The main picture is a bit big, bit in your face but I love it, it kind of happened by accident , I hit pause on the slideshow and it just happened to be as one shot was transisioning into another, took a screenshot then did it again.

  5. it's awesome to see Guruji adjusting older, not so flexible students, loved the older gentleman in the gold pants, thanks for sharing and by the way I really like the name of your book, very encouraging:)especially since you walked and still walk that path, well done:)

  6. I wish I had someone to roll me around in Garba Pindasana! I find these videos really fascinating at this point in my practice, because for the first time in many years I have left the security of my home shala to practice with an actual teacher. What I wouldn't give to be in that room with Guruji though!
