ALL MR. PATHAK EVER WANTED WAS PEACE, AND IT SEEMED AS IF HE SPENT ALL HIS FREE TIME TRYING TO FIND IT.

HAPPY NEW YEAR. 2020.
Here is a short essay on what you might work on in 2020 by asking yourself if you want peace. If you do, where and what and how do you act to get it. If you are like Mr. Pathak, you might want it but find you can’t seem to find it. Mr. Pathak may be able to help you out – give you some clue on what might be keeping you restless and miserable. Good, good luck.

LESSONS. Lesson 5. Part A. The End of Suffering

The first rank in zen is to see the relative in the absolute – we call it change. When things are going the way we want – we can see change as the relative in the absolute. But anytime all h*ll breaks loose in our life – when things don’t go our way – we go wild with suffering. BUT – Buddha tells us there is an end to suffering – You may ask – where is it? And how do I find it? Fashi Lao Yue suggests you take a look here.
