Who Is the Irritating One, You or Me?
Do we find ourselves frequently confronted by difficult people? Did we ever hear ourselves saying, ‘wah lao…is it just me, or is he/she really annoying!’ I have to be honest here…do i really want to know the answer? Well, let’s dig in and find out. May the force be with you!
How to Milk A Painted Cow?
The catchy topic “How to Milk A Painted Cow” is the story told of Chandrakirti, a famed Mahayana master who once fed the monks of his monastery in a time of famine by milking the painting of a cow. If we were to believe that the story was true, then how was that possible? Did Chandrakirti master the power of alchemy? Or was it that he has mastered the power of mind – the realisation of sunyata (emptiness)?
