How The Worm Turns

Although it shouldn’t, I think it does make a difference where good advice comes from. I remember a while ago I was looking for an audio-book about Buddhism and I didn’t like any of the ones that I found because they were narrated by Americans. I felt somehow cheated because I would much prefer to hear sage wisdom being delivered in an English, Tibetan or Indian accent. It just seems to have more gravitas than American. With all due respect to our American cousins, I shudder to think what the Australian Guide to Buddhism would sound like. I still haven’t gotten around to getting a book yet because I thought I would wait until the universe provides it in a format my brain will appreciate.

    In regards to Buddhism in a format your brain will appreciate, I saw a children’s colouring book at the kofta ball van at the Folk Festival this year, it was about about all the people that Krishna beat up. This is the closest I could find online:

    “Beautiful pictures of Krishna’s pastimes in Vrindavana, Krishna killing Kamsa, Radha and Krishna, Krishna stealing butter…”

    Here, have some enlightenment. You’re welcome.
