5/25/2013 May your heart always be joyful…may your spirit always be true…. forever “young”

Have you ever noticed how vibrant and joyful some older monks look?
They seem to embody the potential for one’s outlook to be….
“forever young”

For all of us…

the body, of course, ages…
impermanence, of course, reigns,
but may each of our hearts, minds and spirits
continue to be…
forever “young”…

a happy birthday wish to Jampa
May 25
(Jampa doesn’t celebrate his birthday, but his friends do.. :D)


forever young happy birthday



“forever young,” to kathy,  represents…
a twinkle in the eye,
a kind, open, flexible, forgiving and loving heart,
a mind that is curious, explores, investigates,
one that discovers and experiences
“forever young….”
“forever true….”

Saturday, May 25th…
Saka Dawa…a very, very special day…

Happy Birthday Jampa….
(“merely labeled”… 38 )
may you stay forever “young”…
with a twinkle in the eye, curiosity in the mind,  love in the heart,
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
forever  “young”

  1. It’s true that many monks look young. I think of Thich Nhat Hahn and of course the Dalai Lama who is well in his late 70’s. Have inner peace and devotion may be the fountain of youth. Warmest birthday wishes to a still young Jampa. 😀
