“Before September, there were over 30,000 monks in Rangoon alone. Now there are 6,000. Where are the monks? That is the question.”

One-Liners from Lama Surya Das May 16, 2008

Some pithy Words of Wisdom from Lama Surya Das:

That which we call “I” is just impermanent, ownerless karma rolling along.

Don’t take it personally.


Reality is not all it’s cracked up to be.


I’m enlightened enough for now.


Don’t forget to medicate the ferrets.
