Today is Buddha Poornima. When I think of the Buddha the thing that strikes me most is the peace visible on his face.
Let us not make it yet another ‘day off’ and ‘indulge’. This is exactly what Buddha warned against! He wished that we follow the ‘middle path’ and gain realisation. I am not even attempting to explain what that path is – figure it out for yourself either by reading the masters or if you are luckier, by finding a master. In any case, quickly get on that path.
My prayers on this auspicious day for everyone to attempt such a life. If you have not begun your search for the middle path, begin today! This may be the biggest startup you can do in your life.
