Life is passing (er… ripping…) by…

Rakesh sent me this video clip ad .

Reminded me of this song playing in Conan’s car a long time ago…

life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while.. you might miss it.

    From an email:

    Dhanuggaha Sutta ( the archer ):
    Staying at Savatthi. “Monks, suppose there were four strong archers — well-trained, practiced, & drilled — standing in the four directions, and a man were to come along saying, ‘I will catch & bring down the arrows let fly by these four strong archers — well-trained, practiced, & drilled — before they have fallen to the ground.’ What do you think? Would that be enough to call him a swift man, endowed with the foremost speed?”

    “Even if he were to catch & bring down the arrows let fly by one archer — well-trained, practiced, & drilled — before they fell to the ground, lord, that would be enough to call him a swift man, endowed with the foremost speed, to say nothing of four such archers.”

    “Faster than the speed of that man, monks, is the speed of the sun & moon. Faster than the speed of that man, faster than the speed of the sun & moon, is the speed of the devas who rush ahead of the sun & moon. Faster than the speed of that man, faster than the speed of the sun & moon, faster than the speed of the devas who rush ahead of the sun & moon, the force of one’s life span comes to an end. Thus you should train yourselves: ‘We will live heedfully.’ That’s how you should train yourselves.”

    the concept and picturisation is too good. hats off to the brain behind it. thanks for the clip. i feel the way we look at the world can determine how long we will be in it. it’s so important to accept this time, this very minute, as something of tremendous value that will very soon be gone forever. there are many ways to ensure that we make the best of our time here on earth.
