More random linkage

Where I’m at right now is to give some space to things I’ve encountered in the past little while. No real need to wax philosophically. I’m growing more alarmed at the amount of kickass blogs that are only hitting my radar now.  At a time where I’m moving more into a desire for less digital distraction and more practice and study you all are not making this easy!

  • Another Montreal Buddhablogger! Derek’s Dharma Blog focuses on meditation, dharma and activism and is a fantastic life/practice blog. Do read this post on dana (dontations). It’s a great example on the quality of writing going on here.
  • Zen Dot Studio blogged about a project that artist Lasha Mutual is working on titled the “108 White Tara Series” Her work is beautiful. Just beautiful.

  • Here’s an interview with Chino Moreno from The Deftones from The Indie Spiritualist. Also do check out the trailer for The Indie Spiritualist’s sister project “A Mile in Their Shoes”
  • Karma Phunstok from the “I Can’t Come up With a Witty Blog Title” aka “Words” blog gives his take on the Dalai Lama skateboard I posted about recently. As an self professed “ex-skater and ex-monk”,  I was quite interested (and pretty surprised – in a good way) to see this response. Here’s a snippet:

Being in a position of privilege where you can actually help people, but not doing so due to general laziness of procrastination, lacking renunciation and/or compassion or the very common situation of laziness of self-deprecation, can only really be remedied by ourselves, by watching our own minds, being mindful of whatever shit is going on and dealing with it accordingly. Claiming to be practicing compassion, in a conventional sense, not anything as profound as Bodhicitta, whilst sitting around watching the world burn and very real people suffer, seems grotesquely hypocritical. You have some capacity to help others right now, even if it’s just making an unhappy stranger smile in the street.Where I’m at right now is to give some space to things I’ve encountered in the past little while. No real need to wax philosophically.
