LOL, my anagram is 'anal ordnance'. I can't stop laughing!

I liked what you had to say about Ultimate Reality and pointing out that it's the experience, not words. Thank you for sharing your teachings.

Interesting thought that an extra pleasant cushy life is not taking one closer to enlightenment. If so, does it ever make sense not to try very hard to be good in this life, so that in the next life you will suffer a whole lot and therefore make even more spiritual progress?

Not that I'm saying I'd do this (coast enlightenment wise). I personally have a long way to go spiritually. Plus I have a huge tendancy to procrastinate!

I'll try to take time to meditate tomorrow, and to interact extra kindly with others. Generating kindness and goodwill is worth remembering.

I was entirely sincere in asking for your explanation of ultimate reality, and gratified with the result. I especially liked the practical, practice-oriented emphasis. BTW, my learnedness seems not to have survived my retirement. But seriously, I frequently thank my Extraordinary Root Lama, Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, for saving me from being a scholar.

As for an anagram of my complete Tibetan name, Kunzang Rigdzin Dorje, it's too perfect: Jazzing Redoing Drunk!

All the best from snowy NY.

Carol -- you gave a monk his first belly laugh of the day...times 10,000,000!

Northmoon -- The Buddha said this human life is ideal for spiritual practice because we have just the right balance of impermanence/suffering and leisure time. I see what you're saying, but try hard to be/do good! At the same time, we make aspirational prayers that we will be reborn in just the right way to continue swiftly toward enlightenment, in case we don't ace it in this life.

Lama Kunzang -- yours is hilarious, too. Best to you and Samaya.

Oh, Konchog, this Anagram site is a dangerous thing for unmonitored fools like me. Ever undecided, here are two good options for Sangye Drolma. "Alas Dry Gnome" and "Dreamy Slogan."

Thanks Konchog - I am trying to be good, but I'd better add some of those aspirational prayers too!

Konchog,
Thanks for posting the story about Lha Bab Duchen. I was looking everywhere for a more thorough description. Now I know where to check :-). My anagram is great:
Renovation Dog or Renovation God
I did not become enlightened today, how about you?

Wow, that anagram site is addicting. Putting in my first and last name yielded 306 options, the best being "Reefer Jinni Ox"
With my first name, only two: Free Jinn and
Reef Jinn
Is there a heavy handed implication about drugs and alcohol here? Or does that happen to everyone?

"A Credit Intrench Shrink"

The story of my life in one anagram of my name. How depressing.

I liked your short introduction to the two realities dialectics. Very inspirational.

I had a good chuckle at the "Buddha knew quantum physics," though.

Analogies are the surrender of reason. Traditional Buddhist philosophy makes heavy use of analogies, unfortunately. (Numerous analogies by Trunga Rinpoche are inspirational, so I find them acceptable because he did not write a treaty.)

My favorite anagrams are "Ignorances Thy" and "Chanter Yogins." For my legal name, it came up with "A Bodice Even Wrongs Lollypop." I can picture myself wasting a lot of time on that site!
