Thoughts on Worldly Religion and Lotus Pond

Worldly religion leads to self satisfaction, the very perception that must be discarded. Even transcendent based religions can become worldly. The preservation of the liberating teachings should be held like a lotus... not like a stone or a hammer. ~DGR ~~~

""Weltliche Religion führt zu Selbstzufriedenheit, genau jener Wahrnehmung, die losgelassen werden muss. Selbst Religionen mit transzendenter Grundlage können weltlich werden. Die Bewahrung der befreienden Lehren sollte wie ein Lotus gehalten werden... nicht wie ein Stein." -DGR---"

As cool as a lotus pond, bottoms covered with pearl and silver dust. May you pass your days in delight, refreshed in the Dharma. ~DGR ~~~
