Happy Holy Days!

In this season in which we remember the advent of Lord Jesus, the Great Bodhisattva of the Western peoples, let us contemplate the essence of His teaching:

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see the Most High.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of the Most High.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the children of the Most High. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.

Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but those who do the will of my Father who is in heaven.

Merry Christmas!

    Feliz Navidad, Tashi! Muy relevante las bienaventuranzas del discurso de la montaña en tus votos para la época. He estado buscando tu dirección residencial para enviarte un calendario de thangkas my bello que publica todos los años Wisdom, pero no la encuentro entre el revolú que tengo en mi escritorio luego de regresar de Puerto Rico el 23 de corrientes. Te molestaría enviármenla a mi dirección de correo electrónico.
