Appropriate Appreciation is Gratitude!

One should be grateful towards one's Parents! Why so?
They have worked hard and very long raising one into being!

One should be grateful towards one's
Teachers! Why so?
They do much to make one learn and understand the good...

One should be grateful towards one's
Friends! Why so?
They have shown one an open kindness and much goodwill!

One should be grateful towards one's
Spouse! Why so?
They have loyally accompanied one along a long way...

What is the future kammic effect of gratitude or ungratefulness?
The one who is grateful  will receive gifts and favours ever again!
The one who is ungrateful will never  again receive gifts or favours !
Thankfulness wisely invested thus pays back quite a lot!

Always Say Thanx!

Thanx for Your Attention! ;-)

Gracious is Gratitude!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]

All Buddhas Awakened by Breath Meditation!

It has aspects both of serene calm (Samatha) & incisive insight (Vipassana).
It is extraordinarily advantageous to train this unique breathing technique.
Can recommend this booklet about standard Breathing Meditation very much:
Mindfulness of Breathing. Classic Anapanasati meditation manual of the root
texts translated by
Bhikkhu Ñānamoli. BPS. 1998.

The ideal is when Calm and Insight goes hand in hand, as if yoked together!
Breathing Calm and Insight!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]

We should be Good to our fine Friends here!

The Buddha on the Universality of Friendliness:
I am a friend of all bipeds;
I am a friend of those with four feet,
I am a friend of the many-footed,
I am a friend of those with no feet!
Anguttara Nikaya 4.67

As I am, so are others... As others are, so am I...
Having thus identified self and others,
Never Harm anyone, nor have any being abused.
Sutta Nipata 3.710

Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived in the jungle.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone.
Uplifted by such universal friendliness, I enjoyed the forest.
Finding great solace in such sweetly silenced solitude…
Suvanna-sama Jataka 540

With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart & mind:
Beaming above, below, & all around, unobstructed, without trace of hostility.
Sutta Nipata I, 8

Train yourself in doing good
that lasts and brings happiness.
Cultivate generosity, the life of peace,
a mind of infinite universal love.
Itivuttaka 22

Our Friends!
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest!
Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]

The Ten Mental Liberators:

Venerable Sariputta once explained:
1.  The experience of deep disgust.
2.  The experience of death approaching.
3.  The experience of disliking whatever food.
4.  The experience of dispassion with the entire world.
5.  The experience of the inevitable impermanence.
6.  The experience of frustration inherent in decay.
7.  The experience of the impersonality of existence.
8.  The experience of letting go and leaving all behind.
9.  The experience of disinterested, & detached disillusion.  
10. The experience of calming, stilling, ceasing, and ending.
These 10 perceptions are real, true, exactly so and not otherwise,
perfectly realized, comprehended, and formulated by the Buddha!
They cool all craving, relinquish all clinging, and still all urges...
They are therefore to be remembered, recited, and reflected upon
repeatedly.. When made to arise, they release mind into Bliss and Peace!
