Karma!

Tuesday 21st May 2019 – Diary

On Sunday I had a fantastic time at the temple in North West London. The people were amazing. For the first time in eleven months I ate three meals in space of twelve hours. A lot of the meeting was in the language for people who come from Sri Lanka. I had enough English to understand what was being said and I did not feel left out at all.

The attitude of the people on Sunday has not been the same for those on Facebook and Twitter. I have had nothing but threats and bad mouthing about me. That is fine. If people want to harp on about my past there is nothing I can do to stop them. But I am not going to be dragged back into my past and relive it when the few want me to. I am better than that.

One thing I was reminded of on Sunday was the Buddhist precepts.
Right view,

Right thought,

Right action,

Not to steal,

Refrain from sexual misconduct,

Not to kill any living being (thing).

According to: https://www.accesstoinsight.org/ptf/dhamma/sila/pancasila.html (21/05/2019)

The Five Precepts:

1. Panatipata veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from destroying living creatures.

2. Adinnadana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from taking that which is not given.

3. Kamesu micchacara veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual misconduct.

4. Musavada veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from incorrect speech.

5. Suramerayamajja pamadatthana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from intoxicating drinks and drugs which lead to carelessness.

I do not fight back when people say misleading things about me. I believe in Karma, that Karma will repay the deed.
