Practice the Middle Path without going to extremes; practice it in every aspect of your life, says the Buddha. And then, driving home the point, here’s a Tibetan proverb: you yourself must make the effort, the Buddhas are only teachers.
I always love it when Tibetan Buddhist sayings raise more questions than they answer. A little confusion keeps us from being totally sure and set in our ways – always good, say I.
The Middle Way keeps us awake and paying attention to the balance.
And now you know what’s on the Face of Tibet 2007 calendar for March and April – though you can’t see the bright and beautiful pictures. Tibetans look happy – all the time!
