Lower Down Yourself 
(Khenpo Tamgrin Rinpoche)

No matter we are at home, in company or any other places, at any time and facing any person, we should hold the same mentality. We should not have any contempt or slight to relatives, enemies, good people, evil people or any other beings, and we should at any time put ourselves in the lowest position and put others in the highest position. When you put yourself in the lowest position, you are indeed in the highest position; when you put yourself in the highest position, you are indeed in the lowest position. 

When some people have obtained some worldly knowledge, technology, power, or some merits and achievements in Dharma practice, they become very arrogant and start to despise others. Actually what you own is nothing while comparing to Dharma. No matter how much learning you have taken, you are still ignorant, deluded and distorted, since you have not mastered the true aspect of the realm of reality; no matter how much knowledge you have, the same can only increase your discrimination and delusion and is away from the ultimate truth and reality of the phenomena; no matter how much wealth and power you own, the same only belongs to the world and samsara, and will not deviate from the nature of impermanence or expand beyond the area of samsara. We have been running on empty and experiencing ups and downs while growing up, we devoted a lot, but never achieved the true happiness and joyfulness! Due to the impermanent nature of the phenomena, the so called reputation, position, wealth, power and other worldly achievements are just like to build structures on a sand beach, where only a mass of rubble would be left eventually.
 
At this Dharma ending age, the karmic reward of all beings are becoming smaller and smaller, while the afflictions are becoming heavier and heavier. People are only considering themselves and never consider others. Everybody holds himself very important, feels himself better than anybody else, puts himself in the highest position and wants to inhibit and restrict others everywhere so as to prohibit others to surpass himself. Although by using some selfish methods, they temporarily achieved worldly profit, the rights are great, the powers are strong, the fame and wealth are rich, however, the evil karma they have made in the mean time is also limitless, and in the future they will also experience endless pains. 
 
The vision should be long-term and not be too short; the mind should be open and not be too narrow. The ultimate source of all pains is selfishness, while the ultimate source of all happiness is to benefit all sentient beings. While benefiting all sentient beings, it is actually yourself who will get benefited. So lower down yourself at anytime, be modest, learn the merits and achievements from other people, and correct your shortcomings and deficiencies. Then other people will also care about you, respect you and revere you. If you want to get perpetual happiness and joyfulness, you should do like this.

Great video. It would be enhanced if the ground were visible as a point of reference, especially since most of these maneuvers are so close to the ground.

Justin is an Iraq war Army veteran and Liberty his new battle buddy! This two year-old Pit mix was honorably adopted through our partnership with +Paws and Prayers in Akron, Ohio, which gives a 50% discount to members of our program.

Can we get a "hoorah!" for this fine family?!

Friends! We're trying to move up from 4th place in the Crowdrise #Veterans #Charity Challenge and win this week's bonus prize of $1,500 for the charity that gets the most number of donations.

A $10 gift really helps. We know you love all the stories we share about veterans who adopt last-chance pets, and this is a great chance to show them you care >> bit.ly/pfp-vcc3

Even after enduring the premature death of his wife and both of his parents - all lost to cancer - John finds happiness in his life. 

By all accounts, despite these profound losses, the #Navy veteran has many blessings. 

It is perhaps John's strong emotional constitution that led him to adopt a dog so wanting in so many ways. A refuge of the streets with no indoor manners, a victim of abuse who was just waiting for the next hand to strike her.

Until she met John. >> http://bit.ly/pfp-john-kandi

This used to be a favorite spot, but I suppose it will no longer be on my rotation. I had eaten 3/4 of my omelette when I discovered a hair, it's either a pubic hair or a chest hair. They did give me a free meal coupon, but I doubt I will ever use it. The last time this happened to me was 14 years ago at the now closed forever Bridgetown Grill. It's not everyday I find pubes in my food.

Without reservation, this wonderful & unique pub has the best Cappuccino I have ever tasted. I have been all over the world, sampling coffee from practically everywhere, and this establishment blew ALL the rest away in terms of flavor. Pure heaven. I found this place quite by accident by typing in "coffee" to Google Maps. This was the only non-corporate coffee place open at 10pm that served a proper cuppa Joe. I risked it, and was amazed. Not only was the product amazing, but Adam and his wife who run the place could not have been nicer. When they figured out I was driving thru on my way to Atlanta at that time of night, he asked me if I liked espresso chocolate chip cookies. When I said "Of course!", he have me one On the House!. The customers seemed to be interesting, all ages, and Not One Person diddling with a glowing gadget. Not a one. Everyone was actually talking to one another, playing cards, or whatever, while a groovy older gentleman played solo guitar. It was like a time warp back to the the late 80's or early 90's. Rathskelller, also a true Pub, boasts a draft beer selection to rival any fussy big city beer tavern, and I couldn't count the bottled selections. I could make a weekend trip just for this one spot! Unsurprisingly, this will now be my regular pit stop on my way thru this area of NC. The coffee was so good that I may just make a run up there on my motorcycle just for a cuppa once in a while! Heads up though, they do appear to be closed on Sundays.

Nice place, kayak rentals on the weekend. Too bad I could enjoy the Beach. Like so many Lee County parks, No Pets (dogs) are allowed. I wonder how that would work with Service Dogs? In any case, just a reminder that Florida may seem pretty, but it's pretty uptight, strict, and more often than not, unfriendly to pets. I remember why its been years since I was last here.

A great, if not surprising find, given it's random location on S. Cobb Drive. The son has taken over the place a few months back. If anyone wants the Real McKoy without going down to Louisiana, this is it. Liendenheimer bread on the Po Boys, perfect Red Beans & Rice, Softshell Crab, and this Mardi Gras they drove down to NOLA bought a shipment of King Cakes, brought them back and sell them for a bargain price of $12 each. The service is slow, BUT food is made to order, and I would call their personal and laid back, not actually slow. I am picky about service, and they do take care for their customers, BUT, the food is made after you order it, so it does take a "minute". So to pass the time waiting for the entrée, order a cup of their Gumbo YaYa , as good as the best I have in NOLA. I went to Tulane undergrad in NOLA, so I have sampled many a gumbo, and this ranks at the top.
