GREAT OCCASION

Today is Chotrul Duchen, a holy day for Tibetans. It marks the end of the first 15 days of the Tibetan new year and falls on the first full moon. It is believed that the Buddha displayed a different miracle every day for 15 days, in order to increase the merit and aid the devotion of future disciples. This day honors and celebrates that.

And here's the really exciting part...

This day is AUSPICIOUS. The effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied TEN MILLION TIMES.

Whether or not you believe this, why don't you play along anyway. What can it hurt? If each of us just does ONE positive thing and refrains from negative actions, imagine the global impact.

Imagine.

Feel the goose bumps?

Report back.

Crap! Could you have told me about this before I smacked three kittens, spit on the paperboy and duct-taped my kids to their beds?

;-). Love you.

Wish I'd read this this morning! Third graders on a full moon day was not so auspicious for me. Yikes!

Here's what I did today. Just another day in the life of a public school advocate...

Hmm, yeah it's kind of late for me now. Damn.

Um, I comforted little girls, cried (not at the same time), and bought myself flowers and chocolate. Is that good enough?

I hope everyone else reports back. Including you.
