PostSubject: don't deceive people..... great quote   Wed Dec 19, 2012 1:58 am

"Monks,
this committed life is not lived in order to deceive people, or to
convert them. It is not lived for the sake of gain or honor or
reputation or financial profit. There is no idea of "let me draw
people's attention to me by being a this or a that." No, monks, this
committed life is lived for the sake of seeing into things and
understanding them."

- Itivuttaka Sutta

Thank you for asking this question Stan, I too was pretty befuddled about this and wondered what the "deeper meaning" about this could be, if there is one?

I think we should try quessing the meaning of that avatar before Chisan wakes up and responds... I'll go first since I'm far enough away to be too much trouble to thump.

I thinks it's shot of cardboard queen being held up by a happy waving mike.

Leave it to Chisan to come out of a warehouse.

And there was I thinking it was the Queen holding up a cardboard cut out of a waving Chisan and giggling.

And as to Howard's new avatar don't be taken in by his beclouding explanations it is clearly a secret tantric mudra on size.

OK If I must drag the cheesy down to your level.

A cheesy is not limited to large or small. A cheesy is in fact the reflection of a wider truth.

The first part of this teaching is easy to understand but partners can be a bit sensitive about that second part.
