I kid you NOT.

If you can understand & appreciate this picture you have mastered 45% of the Buddhist doctrine.

Yep. One picture that is worth 300,000-words.

I am NOT kidding.

It all has to do with the impermanence of all things living & beautiful.

This flower was at its glory for a few days.

Now it is withering. Soon it will be dead — & GONE.

So, will YOU!

That is a FACT. That is TRUE.

That is 45% of Buddhism in this one picture.

I am an EXPERT on Buddhism. I kid you NOT.

I learnt of this from a post on Facebook by a friend. WOW. She got ‘it’ as a present at her shower.

I can SEE the potential — as you can see from my comment (1st image).

Wow.

Up to the ‘mother’ to DECIDE on the audience.

Humans are so ingenious.

SMILE.

Is Ex-Pope Benedict Entitled To A Full Papal Funeral?

by Anura Guruge


Click to access MSN original. Google for more.


I do NOT know. We are in uncharted territory. The previous pope to resign, i.e., Gregory XII, genuinely retired & went into obscurity OUTSIDE of Rome. He did NOT get a papal funeral — & from what I can see, even one due a cardinal.

I do NOT think the ex-pope is entitled to a full papal funeral.

Why?

For the very simple reason that he was NOT a pope when he died. He, by choice, was an EX-POPE.

Yes, he will be buried in St. Peter’s at the Vatican (I am sure (unless he has managed to fanagle it so that he can be buried in Germany)). I have no problem with that. As one who had been pope he is entitled to be buried in St. Peter’s.

But, to afford him a FULL papal funeral, with the 9-days of formal mourning — i.e., novendiales — would be wrong. He is an EX-pope, an the ex- was NOT because he died.

Francis already has enough trouble from this ex-pope. Affording him a full papal funeral will just exacerbate matters.

That is what I think? What do YOU think?
