Benevolently Awakened One Buddha’s Last Words
35) Classical Benevolent English,Roman,
An almost tremendous
disservice has come about from the human need to lift the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One up and
place him on a pedestal of perfect purity.
We miss out on the richness of the complete story of Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One.
This is why Shunryu Suzuki said, “Kill
the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One if the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One exists somewhere else. Kill the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One, because
you should resume your own Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One nature.”
The Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One was a renunciate. Renunciation as to the letting go of
clinging to things that are not the true essence of what “you” are.
When the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One rediscovered that truth then he truly came alive.
And for forty-five years he took on the role of the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One and preached the Dhamma for the benefit of all beings.
All of this hooplah we call the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One
and the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One’s life and you have no issues? No thoughts about it?
In Zen this is good. This place of no-thought or non-thought.
Not like a dull state like a power-saving mode where all of life is gone.
A beautiful wide open wonderment that is alive and ever responding compassionately to whatever appears.
Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One is a thought in the thoughtless state of the fundamental nature of mind.
This mind is like the wide open sky or the boundlessness and groundlessness of space.
In it all Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One’s are birthed. All worlds appear.
When it’s not recognized we call it a sentient being and those ones get into all kinds of mischief.
When it is recognized we call it a Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One and those ones get into all kinds of mischief.
What kind of trouble do you want to get up to?
Nibbana – Paranibbana – so many words to tie up our brains so that we trade in our Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One Nature for a confused wanderer.
Look at Bodhicitta.
What is the heartfelt wish that you’re cherishing with this life?
In the Bodhicitta is everything.
When the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One died he got to put down
the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One. He had been carrying the Buddha for 45 years. And finally
Ananda let him put the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One down.
The Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One asked Ananda three times if
he wanted the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One to stay. And three times Ananda’s tender heart
could not bear the burden of becoming.
But after the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One was gone Ananda attained awakening under the guidance of the crusty old Mahakasyapa.
Why did the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One show up?
Where did the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One go?
While there was “here” for the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One what was he doing?
Was there really a here and there for the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One ?
Was there coming and going in the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One mind?
Look and tell me what you find…
For the benefit of all beings.
Beings appear and the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One is there.
He took on the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One and then had to take on Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One rules.
Then after 45 years he was free of all those rules we put on him.
Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One’s final words supposedly were, “Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort
you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with
It’s very interesting if you look at it:
- Behold! – Like a magician or conjurer. Ta dah!!! What am I beholding? What do you want me to see Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One?
- Now! Atha – it’s in no other place than now. Right here. Right now.
- Bhikkhus: Bhikkhu
literally means “beggar” or “one who lives by alms” They did not see the
conjurer. Could not see now so they were poor and destitute. Wandering
about not knowing where home was.
- I – who’s this I? What’s this I? Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One nature? Sunyata? Or greed, hatred and delusion? What is this I? Look! Who is this “I” for?
- Exhort: “to exhort,
encourage,” from Old French exhorer (13c.) and directly from Latin
exhortari “to exhort, encourage, stimulate,” from ex- “thoroughly” (see
ex-) + hortari “encourage, urge” (from PIE root *gher- (2) “to like,
want”). Related: Exhorted; exhorting. – so the great urge the great
motivating factor is what? “I” or “Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One Nature”? Why was the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One so
desperate to make this point? Why was he practically begging them to
see. This Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One “I” was pretty worked up in that moment. Why?
- You: what is this you?
If you is ever changing and only Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One nature is the truest of true
then you is I and I is you and you and I arise from some place that
knows you and I. Is that where the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One spoke from? In that place does
all things preach the dharma? Is that Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One nature?
So is Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One the alpha and omega?
Is Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One Nature the beginningless beginning of all beingness?
Or is it beingness itself?
And where do we find the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One ? Mind of course. This is why Zen points directly to mind.
And then does the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One – after he has
opened up their minds with the above statement, “Behold now, bhikkhus, I
exhort you!” give the summation of impermanence and the fundamental
requirement for realization in the zeal to realize it? “All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!”
Is Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One nature compounded?
Can it be created?
Do the practices conjure it?
If it’s not compounded and is ever present then is it subject to vanish?
If it’s ever present and not subject to vanish how do we realize it?
Is it in the Bodhicitta?
In that heartfelt wish?
In the zeal to discover it?
If Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One Nature is here right now what do I need to strive for?
Did the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One want us to finally see so we too could enter into his abode with him? A place that we already abide in naturally?
Was that Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One‘s final wish?
Is the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One really Bodhicitta then?
Are we wishful filling jewels?
So if all thoughts vanish – if all thoughts and constructs of Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One vanish – what’s left?
This is why Mahakyasapa is still smiling to this day after the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One held up a flower to the assembly.
At the heart of every universe is the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One turning the wheel of dharma. All are saved.
This is why he said upon awakening, “How interesting that I and all beings are awakened simultaneously.”
So when we practice we practice all beings.
You awaken all beings with your awakening.
We must heed the Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One‘s words that he spoke in the Diamond sutta…
The Buddha the Benevolently Awakened One told Subhuti, “all
Bodhisattvas, Mahàsattvas, should thus subdue their hearts with the vow,
“I must cause all living beings — those born from eggs, born from
wombs, born from moisture, born by transformation; those with form,
those without form, those with thought, those without thought, those not
totally with thought, and those not totally without thought — to enter
nirvàna without residue and be taken across to extinction. Yet of the
immeasurable, boundless numbers of living beings thus taken across to
extinction, there is actually no living being taken across to
extinction. And why? Subhuti, if a Bodhisattva has a mark of self, a
mark of others, a mark of living beings, or a mark of a life, he is not a
It’s enough to drive you mad all this being and non-being, self-notself, emptiness is form and form is emptiness mumbo jumbo.
It’s a great bunch of dust and dirt we toss about to discover the truth.
It’s like we stare at a golden ornament in our house while all the while we’re complaining about how poor we are.
But here in this one sentence that the Buddha whispered at his death is the whole teaching no?
“Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!”
This is why the Buddha was the Buddha and is still the Buddha and will forever be the Buddha.
Resting upon the seat of perfect purity.
Buddhaful beyond measure
And so are you…
So just rest upon the seat of perfect purity now.

Eating Fruit on Empty Stomach
This will open your eyes ! Read to the end and then send it on to all on your e-list. I just did !
Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an “un-orthodox” way and many patients recovered.
he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he
believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his
It is one of the strategies to heal cancer.
As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.
Cancer patients shouldn’t die. The cure for cancer is already found - its in the way we eat fruits.
It is whether you believe it or not.
I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.
It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and *when* to eat the fruits.
What is the correct way of eating fruits?
IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!
FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
you eat fruits on empty stomach, it will play a major role to detoxify
your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss
and other life activities.
FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.
Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.
slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the
intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken
before the fruit.
In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit rots and ferments and turns to acid.
minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and
digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.
So please eat your fruits on an *empty stomach* or before your meals !
You have heard people complaining :
time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up,
when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc.. etc..
Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.
The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat !
hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all
these will *NOT* happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.
is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic,
because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert
Shelton who did research on this matter.
you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the *
SECRET * of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal
When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only * fresh* fruit juice, NOT from the cans, packs or bottles.
Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.
Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all.
You only get its taste.
Cooking destroys all the vitamins.
But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.
you should drink the fresh fruit juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful
slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing
You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify your body.
Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout
the 3 days.
And you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look !
Tiny but mighty.

GUAVA & PAPAYA:
Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.
Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.
Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.
Drinking COLD water or drinks after a meal = CANCER
For those who like to drink cold water or cold drinks, this article is applicable to you.
It is nice to have a cup of cold water or cold drinks after a meal.
However, the cold water or drinks will solidify the oily stuff that you have just eaten.
It will slow down the digestion.
Once this ’sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.
It will line the intestine.
Very soon, this will turn into FATS and lead to CANCER !
It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks.
HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE : ( THIS IS NOT A JOKE! )
Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.
Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.
Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.
Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.
Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.
Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.
A cardiologist says:
if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.
So let us do！！！ at least I have done 1 good deed today.
Germinating and Planting Indoors
This is Dukkha Nirodha i.e., End of Suffering
Known for its size, smell, and spiky appearance, durian fruit is
typically grown in tropical areas around Malaysia, Indonesia, and
Thailand. You can grow your own durian tree if the environment is right,
or if you mimic the durian tree’s tropical environment indoors. To grow
durian, you’ll have to water the tree often and keep the temperature
Planting Durian Seeds Outside
Plant your seeds outdoors if you get lots of rainfall and high temperatures.
Check the internet to find out your area’s rainfall and average
temperatures. Only plant your durian outside if you receive somewhere
between 60–150 in (150–380 cm) of rain per year, and if the temperature
stays above 45 °F (7 °C).
- Durian trees can wither and die quickly in temperatures any lower than 45 °F (7 °C).
Wait for the hottest, rainiest part of the year to plant your seeds.
Durian trees need copious amounts of water and high temperatures to
survive. If you’re planting your durian tree outside, be sure to plant
it when your area is about to get a lot of heat and rain, in order to
mimic the tropical conditions in which durian trees grow.
Plant the durian tree in an area with full shade.
Young durian trees can easily wither with too much sunlight. Find a spot
where the durian tree can receive high temperatures without high
- Consider planting the tree in the shadow of other trees.
Measure the pH level of the soil before planting. To successfully grow durian, you must ensure that the soil under the tree isn’t too alkaline or acidic. Perform a soil test to check your soil’s pH balance.
- If your soil’s pH balance is below 6.0, add a cup of dolomite or quick lime, then test it again.
- If your soil’s pH balance is above 7.0, add a cup of peat moss or compost, then try again.
Dig a hole 1.5 ft (46 cm) and combine the soil with compost.
Dig up the soil where you want to plant your durian seed at least
1.5 ft (46 cm) down and across. Combine 1 part soil with 1 part organic
compost and refill the hole with the mixture.
- This will ensure that your durian tree has well-draining organic soil to grow from.
Set the seed directly from the fruit on top of the soil.
Place the seed on top of the soil without burying it. Simply push the
seed down a little with your finger; the majority of the seed should
still be visible on top of the soil.
- Seeds from the durian fruit can be planted outside immediately after
taking them out of the fruit, with no germination period necessary.
- The seed should sprout and attach itself to the soil after a day or 2.
Weed around your durian tree once a day. Check for
small weeds every day, as weeds will compete with the durian tree for
water and nutrients. Pull weeds out with your hands, since more invasive
techniques might scrape the durian’s delicate roots.
Plant your seeds in indoor pots if you live in a cold or dry climate.
If your area doesn’t get 60–150 in (150–380 cm) of rain per year or
constant temperatures above 45 °F (7 °C), consider planting your durian
inside in a 5 US gal (19 l) pot.
Be sure to layer the bottom of the pot with pebbles to allow better drainage.
When planting indoors, use a mix of 1 part potting soil and 1
part organic compost. This will ensure that your soil drains quickly
enough for the durian tree to not drown or rot in standing water.
Start your seeds in a plastic bag with a soaked paper towel.
Put your seeds in a plastic bag with a soaked paper towel and seal the
bag. This will allow the bag to develop condensation, which will keep
the seeds moist and more likely to germinate.
Place the bag in an area that gets 4-6 hours of direct sun.
Try a windowsill or outside: the point is to get heat into the bag so
that the water in the paper towel will evaporate, creating a water cycle
that will nourish the seed.
- If you can’t keep your seeds on a windowsill or outside, try keeping them under a grow light.
Check for roots after 4-5 days. After 4-5 days, the
durian seeds should be growing roots. Look for small yellow or brown
tendrils coming out of the seeds and plant them when the roots are
longer than the seed itself.
Place the seeds on top of potting soil and compost in a pot.
Gently push the seeds down onto the soil, but don’t push them all the
way in. Durian plants root themselves by standing up on top of the soil,
so make sure you leave the majority of the seeds above the soil line.
Water your durian tree every day. Make your durian
tree is receiving 4–6 L (1.1–1.6 US gal) of water a day. Spread this
water out between the morning and the afternoon.
- Once your durian tree starts producing fruit, increase this to 6–8 L (1.6–2.1 US gal).
Keep the temperature around 75–85 °F (24–29 °C). A
durian tree’s native environment stays around 75–85 °F (24–29 °C), so if
you want your plant to thrive, you should mimic that environment. 
- Remember that durian plants can wither and die in temperatures below 45 °F (7 °C).
Durian is a fruit from Southeast Asia that’s famous for its large
size, its thick and spiky shell, and its pungent smell and potent
flavor. In fact, durian is known as the world’s smelliest fruit, and it
has even been banned in some public spaces because of its smell. Durian
can be eaten raw, served with rice, or even fried. When you buy a whole
durian, you must use a sharp knife to cut open the shell to reveal the
custard-like fruit inside before you can eat it.
Opening the Durian
Put on gloves. When opening a durian,
gloves are important for several reasons. For one, they’ll protect your
hands from the spikes on the outside of the fruit. They’ll also keep
your hands from smelling like the fruit, which some people find
unpleasant. Finally, the gloves will also help you hold the durian
steady as you cut into it.
You can use thick rubber gloves, clean gardening gloves, a baseball mitt, or even a clean towel to protect your hands.
Cut off the stem. Turn the durian on its side and
hold it firmly in place with one hand. With the other hand, use a sharp
knife to carefully slice the stem from the top of the fruit. Cut off the
stem and a small sliver from the top of the shell. Turn the durian over
and rest it on the cut edge.
- Cutting a sliver from the top of the fruit will give you an even edge to rest the durian on as you cut into it.
Locate the seams. The fruit inside a durian grows in
pods, and the shell grows in sections around these pods. As such, the
durian will have seams where the shell comes together, and you can open
the fruit easily by locating and cutting the seams.
- The seams of a ripe durian will actually start to tear apart on their own, so you may not even have to cut into the fruit.
Make deep scores in the shell at the seams. For
durians that aren’t perfectly ripe, use a sharp knife to carefully cut
along the seams of the fruit. Start with a shallow cut, and then cut
progressively deeper until the sections of the shell start coming apart.
Cut the entire length of the seam. Repeat with each seam in the shell.
Cutting in progressively deeper slices will ensure you cut
deeply enough to crack the shell, but not so deeply that you score the
Pry the shell apart. Once you’ve made cuts deep
enough in the seam that you can open the shell, put the knife down. Pick
a seam to start and stick your thumbs or fingers on both sides of the
opening. Pull the seams away from each other to open the shell and
reveal the pod of fruit inside.
- Repeat with all the seams to reveal all the pods of flesh.
Eating the Fruit
Remove the pods of flesh. When the shell has been
fully cracked open, the sections of the shell will come apart in wedges.
Inside each wedge will be a pod of fruit. You’ll be able to pull the
fruit away from the shell easily if the durian is ripe. Otherwise, use a
sharp knife to cut away the fibrous parts attaching the pod to the
shell, and then remove the fruit.
The edible fruit of a durian is the soft and yellowish pod-like flesh at the center of each wedge.
Eat the fruit with your hands. Durian fruit is soft
and custard-like, so you’ll be able to tear pieces off the pods easily.
Remove a bite-sized chunk from one of the pods and eat the fruit with
your hands. Continue tearing off bites and eating the fruit with your
- A single cup (243 g) of durian contains over 350 calories, and it’s
also high in fat and sugar. However, durian also contains lots of
nutrients, including vitamins C and B6, iron, manganese, fiber, and
- Some people find durian to have a pungent fruity flavor, while
others think it tastes like onions, rotting, or turpentine. Durian is an
acquired taste, so don’t worry if you don’t like it.
Eat around the seed. Inside each pod of flesh will be a dark seed that’s similar in size to a date.
This seed isn’t edible. You can either cut out the seed before
you start eating, pull it out with your fingers, or eat around it like
you would with a cherry.
Slice the fruit into pieces as an alternative.
Instead of eating durian with your hands, you can slice the pods into
thin slivers to serve them on a platter or with other foods. After you
remove the pod from the shell, place the fruit on a cutting board. Use a
knife to slice the durian into small sections. Remove the seed when you
Eating Durian Other Ways
Serve durian with sticky rice and coconut milk. Fill a bowl with freshly made sticky rice.
Layer a few slices of fresh durian on top of the rice, and drizzle
coconut milk on top. For a sweeter treat, top the rice and fruit with
mildly sweetened coconut milk.
- You can also combine the durian with mango and other fresh fruits.
Try durian ice cream. Durian ice cream is a popular
treat in many Asian countries. If you’re not able to find this chilled
dessert, you can always make your own ice cream and flavor it with chunks of fresh durian.
- If you don’t like the taste of durian right away, try durian
flavored snacks like ice cream and chips to help you acquire a taste for
Snack on durian chips. Durian chips are pieces of
durian that have been sliced and deep fried. You can buy these in many
Asian markets, Asian grocery stores around the world, or online from
specialty grocery sites.
- Durian chips have a milder flavor, and taste like slightly fruity potato chips.
Try it with other fruit. Durian is a great addition
to a fresh fruit cocktail. Cut the durian into small chunks and combine
it with other tropical fruits, such as mango, papaya, guava, coconut,
and pineapple. You can even add in some nuts and toasted coconut to make
a more substantial snack.
