A Zen student came to Bankei and said: "Master, I have A Zen student came to Bankei and said: "Master, I have an ungovernable temper. How can I cure it?" "Show me this temper," said Bankei, "it sounds fascinating." "I haven't got it right now," said the student, "so I can't show it to you." "well then," said Bankei, "bring it to me when you have it." "But I can't bring it just when I happen to have it," protested the student. "In that case," said Bankei, "it cannot be part of your true nature. Next time you feel angry go and run around the house seven times, and after it sit under a tree and watch where the anger has gone. Anger is just a mental vomit ... In transformation you never control, you simply become more aware. Even while anger is happening, if you suddenly become conscious it drops. When you are cool you can enjoy the whole world. This may sound paradoxical, but I tell you: only a buddha enjoys this world. And the Flowers Showered #3

10 Most Fascinating Castles and Palaces - (castles of the world, malbork castle) The Potala Palace: Tibet's greatest monumental structure Perched upon Marpo Ri hill, 130 meters above the Lhasa valley, the Potala Palace rises a further 170 meters and is the greatest monumental structure in all of Tibet. In 637 Emperor Songtsen Gampo decided to build this palace on a hill, and the structure stood until the seventeenth century, when it was incorporated into the foundations of the greater buildings still standing today. Construction of the present palace began in 1645 during the reign of the fifth Dalai Lama and by 1648 the Potrang Karpo, or White Palace, was completed. The Potrang Marpo, or Red Palace, was added between 1690 and 1694; its construction required the labors of more than 7000 workers and 1500 artists and craftsman. Mont Saint-Michel: a Medieval Castle on a Small Island Mont St Michel France is situated on a quasi-island on the Normandy coast, near Brittany, which at high tide is almost entirely separated from the mainland.

Two Stupid Cats It occurs to me I never mentioned that Lola, my lovable but not-all-there kitty, has a sister named Emmy. Emmy is her polar opposite: moody, intelligent, and horribly unfriendly. I remember when I adopted them at the Kitten Rescue. Lola sat there like a tiny furry beached whale, staring off into space, and Emmy was hunched in the corner of her cage scowling at everyone that walked by. I imagined that if Emmy was a human, she'd have a tattered journal full of Morrissey-esque poetry. I had no idea what I was in for when I picked them out. As they got older, their distinctive personalities differed more and more. Lola will become one with the box. Emmy will destroy it. Lola is an ideal example of the timeless "Cats Don't Care" adage. Emmy, on the other hand, seldom lets anyone get near her. It's a rare occurance when Emmy lets someone pet her, and it's always on her own terms. The pleasantries never last, however. And yet, I can't help but love them both, awful as they are.
