23.11.1997 - Interpretation of dali48

Birth and death - a serious happening! How life is transient! - Watch every minute (moment)! - Time does not stand still for anybody... (A. Watts)

The 4 great vows:
How countless the living beings always are... - I vow not to harm them - How inexhaustible the passions are, I vow to rule them - How immeasurably always the doctrines are, I vow to learn it - How incomparable ever the Buddha truth is, I vow to attain it...

The ideal of the Bodhisattva (Sanyasin) is, to be not separated from the world - He should be "in" it, but not "of" it...

Man himself hinders the light, and he wonders - that it is so dark...

Death, the only certainty in life - that can come at any moment... (P. Oppermann, OTI, 11/97)

Then the cultural shock: cars, people who turn their heads to us, loud music etc...

7 people who have done the same for 3 days:
They sat in a cave in silence and darkness. 7 completely different stories - Never has it become so clear - that each one creates his own world...

"God", give me the serenity to accept things - which I can not change... (G. Rudolph, OTI, 11/97)
