 Buddha’s teachings are said to be like a precious wheel because, wherever they spread, the people in that area have the opportunity to control their minds by putting them into practice.

    🙂 Let me know what you come up with!

    A meditation retreat–that sounds SO wonderful. I wish I could get away for something like that…maybe in Florida… Have a wonderful time.

    All beings contain within them Buddha nature. Even Magdalene.

    And you, Michael…I bow to the Buddha nature in you.

    Peace,

      Nancy,

      It “was” only yesterday. Just found out this wheel was designed by an Indian King who helped spread Buddhism to Greece in 300 BC when 20,000 Greek monks became Buddhists.

      He ordered medicine to be provided to all men and women as well as “all animals.” This was at a time when they were really “beasts of burden.” The animals, not the men. Or the women!

      Am preparing for 5-day Buddhist retreat and will be “hibernating.” Want to meditate to determine if Mary Magdaline had some Greek blood in her veins. Or possibly, Buddhism in her consciousness . . .
