72-Text by Banthe
Compassion is the Good Core of Buddhism!
Overcome the angry by friendliness,
overcome the wicked by goodness,
overcome the miser by generosity,
overcome the liar by truth...
Dhammapada 223

He who neither punishes, nor makes others punish,
He who neither steals, nor makes others steal,
who in friendly goodwill shares with all that lives,
such kind gentle one meets no enmity anywhere...
Itivuttaka 27

Train yourself in doing only what is good,
that will last and bring great happiness!
Cultivate generosity, a peaceful living,
and a mentality of infinite friendliness...
Itivuttaka 16

74- Never forget that trees are sentient beings too.Sentient means can sense.Where I live there are trees that give us their sap every spring.If this is not a living being,I wonder what is.

By the way ,what i 'love' the most on this planet is Trees,especially The Wheeping White Birch.

75-The Last Relinquishment:

When ignorance of the 4 Noble Truths finally fully evaporates,
One no longer clings to any sense pleasure, any views, or any rules and rituals!
One no longer clings to any idea of a self, I, Me, Ego, Soul or Identity at all...
When one does not cling, one is not agitated! One remains imperturbable...
When one is not perturbable, one attains the state of Nibbāna right there!
One then understands: Rebirth is ended, this Noble life has been completed,
What had to be done is done, there is no more relapsing into any state of being

76-To those who do not know I suffer from severe brain damage,due
to,you will not beleive this.

36 years ago I quit drinking and mixing it with valium.5 years ago ,I started having memory episodes.Had all the scans available taken.Verdict ,atheriosclorosis of the brain accompanied by part of my brain deatroyed ,black neurons ,grey neurons.

So imagine it appeared 36 years after.So be careful with what you you shove down your throat or your arms.It will get you
eventually. My brain has been reduced by at least 50 % memory wise. My main loss is cognitive,i almost do not remember my past.
So be good to yourself'

Dhamma out of sympathy, then you should train yourself in being in harmony,
cordial, and without conflict and train in yourselves cultivation of all the 37
fine mental qualities: The 4_Foundations_of_Awareness, the 4 right efforts,
the 4_Feet_of_Force, the 5 Abilities, 5 powers, the 7 Links to Awakening,
& the Noble_8-Fold_Way. Majjhima Nikāya 103

A Tathagata is worshipped, honoured, respected, thanked & shown gratitude

79- words by Banthe:
When a Bhikkhu is devoted to this recollection of generosity, he becomes
ever more intent on generosity, his favourite becomes non-greedy charity,
he acts with kind, noble, & loving liberality, and he gains a fine lion-heart.
He enjoys much happiness and gladness. And if he penetrates no higher, he
is at least headed for a happy destiny.

For those who do not know the sense of the word Bhikkhu,it means:
An ordained monk over 20 years old.
