Made my first trip in car from Las Vegas to Long Beach with 13 inch durian in a bag, then in a hefty trash bag tied shut. Still felt like the inside of the car was a durian forest! 😀
Don’t regret it though. First time I ate durian, and with mangosteen. Was so delicious 😀
Deleriously happy…..I love it too! Deleriously happy would be the perfect description of any pilgrim anywhere on the grounds at the Monastery. That and stunned speechless at all of the beauty in every nook and cranny so loving created and maintained. AND THEN, one sees a monk or two and is a stunned speechless deleriously happy pilgrim. The monks must get a kick out of this phenomenon.
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
