Flame of Blessing

When the all-pervading rays
of the Buddha's compassion
are focussed through the
magnifying glass of your
faith and devotion,
the flame of blessing
blazes up in your being.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Of Note: There have been many Buddha's other than the one that lived 2500 years ago. Buddha is simply the name of a type of saving Avatar, and many have walked the Earth. In this sense, Christ was a Buddha as well and was often accepted as such in the East. So, if one can only see a Buddha statue in their mind's eye when seeing the word, substitute the word Christ. The buddhic message of love and compassion is universal. Many thanks to Marie for the gorgeous Texas sunset shot used as a flaming backdrop.

Today's Weather Report: More sunshine and cool mornings. I can't remember August ever being so lovely. Then, I've never been home every day like this to enjoy it.
