Happy Uposatha 

It’s an uposatha day and, in so many ways, I don’t feel up to it. I feel I haven’t slept well, I’m hungry. My wife and I had our daily disagreement and I generally offell out  sorts. And yet…

I’m healthy and living in a country not yet ravaged by war. I’m able to take time to practice the Dhamma. My job gives me enough money to support my family and give dana. Frankly, there’s no good reason to believe Mara’s lies. 

Today I’ll observe the uposatha and dedicate the merit to those who have passed. Sabbe satta sabba dukkha pamuccantu.
