    Read the thread related Buddhist soldier made me think of this guy's picture.
    A gangster (see attached picture) can be a Buddhist too, why not a soldier :).


    Stand-up comedian Mike DeStefano (1966-2011).

    Listen to his talk below title:

    "The Junkie and the Monk"
    http://themoth.org/posts/stories/the-junkie-and-the-monk
    (After a series of devastating blows, a comedian decides to take his own life.)

    ...
    before he turned to Buddhism, he thought a Lama was some animal (llama) from south America:).
    ...
    he also talked about a Lama gave him the tonglen.

  • Re: Kill The Buddha

    If I see a Buddha on the road, I cannot kill the Buddha yet... because I still have too many attachments :)

    Anyone remembers if there is a story related to this saying? Not sure if this is story. Something like this...

    A master and his disciple were traveling on a cold and rainy night. They took refuge in an abandon home/temple. They burned wood to keep warm. After awhile they ran out of wood and things to burn, the master told the disciple to go ahead and burn the wooden Buddha statue that they have with them. The disciple was hesitate, then the master told the disciple to go ahead...

    Another story. Something like this...

    There was an enlightened master. When his time was up, two yakshas came to his place to take him away. However, they could not find him, because he was enlightened being. The yakshas learned that this master still has an attachment. A jade bowl the king had gifted to him. The yakshas found and took his precious jade instead. The master saw that, then he appeared. The yakshas got him. The master realized his flaw. So he asked the two yakshas for a favor by letting him see his precious jade bowl before taking him away. The yakshas ok. When the master got his bowl back, he smashed the jade bowl and disappeared. The yakshas can never find him again...

    Enjoy....
