Kan: The wild boar runs from the tiger. Knowing that each being well armed by nature with deadly strength, may kill the other. Running, he saves his own life, and that of the tiger. This is not cowardice. It is the love of life.

That qoute is fine.
Are you prepared for the collision of those two notions?
I have been waiting for decades.
Let us continue to work hard.
This time, as most, requires serious work.
It shocks me that you suggest "public opinion" does not recognize this.

Yep, in addition to you, it has been pointed out that I have once again missed out on being at the his holiness's presence. I want to witness this, but I do not follow the signs.

Regardless, I really appreciated the following quote I found at Channel3000...
"Six billion human beings are basically the same, mentally, emotionally and physically," said the Dalai Lama. 


I find it significant to reflect on the full meaning of this statement.

zen master

A nickname for former Bulls and Laker's coach Phil Jackson, because of his use of Buddist philosophy in basketball.
How did Phil keep all of those punk baby beeyitches together for so long? Because he's the Zen Master.
