    What a bizarre concept: teaching moral values, and believing that a moral society will be a good society.

    Sadly, his words of wisdom will no doubt be lost on the residents of San Francisco, where anything goes:

    Sounds like Dalai and Jesus are in agreement on this one point. But then again I've posted the same thing and I'm not a Wise Man or The Son of God....perhaps it is just common sense which appears to be lost and seems profound when stated by certain folk.

    I'd have to dig deep to find the quote. Back in '86 he gave a series of talks in Ann Arbor. In a follow up interview, he was asked about the Chinese invasion and occupation of Tibet. His answer touched on killing in self defense, that sometimes the the compassionate thing to do is to fight back, that your intent is to defend your own life when your aggressor is intent on taking it. Then there would be no ill karmic effects. (I'm probably mixing teachings here.)

    I wouldn't confuse fetishes with morality. Parading in a My Little Pony BDSM outfit declares to the world that you're strange, yes. Immoral? That depends on your integrity and what you do in the world.

    A criminal defense law professor once said, "there are people you can trust with your life, your wife, your children, your pile of cash in the living room, and rarely are they the same person."
    To me, the moral person is that one you can trust with all four.

    [edit] to add "your life" in the quote above. Heard the quote sitting in a classroom at Willamette U back in 1991.

    Switch to Zen. Zen can be found in everything.
