“Many say that growing older causes

the mind to wander, the body to stiffen, and the heart to harde.

 

That is not the case for us.

As we become sages, our minds begin to see the oneness of all things,

our bodies become more flexible and supple

and our hearts soften in love.

 

You can train your mind through meditation, reading

and mental exercise.

Your can train your body through yoga, Tai Chi

and physical exercise.

You can train your heart through listening, accepting

and forgiving all.”

A Buddha a Day Series:
Since the 3rd century, many rulers and kings have ruled over Burma (Myanmar).  During each period, Buddha statues were made in a different style.  When we visited Myanmar in January 2018, we were amazed at their number and variety, taking photos until we lost count.  I’m happy to share these images with you, along with selected quotes.
