    Westerners associate this gesture with prayer, but in Buddhism, the anjali mudra represents "suchness" (tathata) -- the true nature of all things, beyond distinction.

    Mindfulness is the art of appreciating the moment just as it is

    “Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.” ~Thomas Merton ..*






    Let your love flow outward through the universe, To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity. Then as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a one-pointed mind; Your life will bring heaven to earth. --Sutta Nipata ..*
