The Simpsons is a brilliant show and I find myself relating to Lisa
the most, not only because of her "conversion" but for numerous other
reasons. Great episode as well.
Carl: If I didn't have inner peace, I'd completely go psycho on all
you guys, all the time.
Lenny: Who's Buddah?
Richard Gere: It's a good thing Buddhism teaches freedom from desire
because I've got the desire to kick your ass!
Lisa: :shouting: I'm a Buddhist! Hey I'm a Buddhist!
Ned: My satan-sense is tingling! Into the root cellar boys!
Todd: When can we come out?
Ned: Maybe never!
All (with sound) here:
I don't care whether christmas is considered Christian or a
securalized commercial holiday or what. I don't think about it
much. I just buy presents for my family and I enjoy it. I
especially enjoy giving stuff to my mom. She is fun to shop for.
Dana (genorosity) is also the first virtue of a Bodhisattva, Just
let go, open up, be generous.
Don't forget december 8th was also Rohatsu. So...
