As i told you we(me and chanux as always) went to asahanaya’s house in Thursday (14th) evening. We were planning to get in to the Colombo bus early in the morning with David and Randy(Asanka & Naya). although we had to sleep early to get up early, I couldn’t sleep coz I am addicted to sleep late in the night. No need to tell about chanux David and Randy Thanks to Suntel (a lanken telecommunication company) they’ll never sleep early with their “Night Owl” Internet package 🙂 . By trying and trying i was able to crash at abt 11.30PM i just remember Randy configuring all four alarms(even phone alarms) so that we’ll get up on time…
When i woke up in the morning at 1.15 AM I found that Asa had a problem with his health.It looks like there’s some thing wrong with Asa’s stomach.He was trying to hide his heaviness and make us go to Colombo leaving him alone at home. But he was wrong about his friends, all three of us were planning to stay home with Asa and leave the other two to go.Asanka’s mango buddy Randy left the idea of going Colombo without Asa and took the decision to stay.Nicely done! Randy. Asa is so lucky to have such a nice friend like you and so am I. So this whole scene ended by Randy staying home to look after Asanka.
It seems that the tittle of ma last post is valid not only for me but also for the rest of the world. Or whole universe. No need to surprise coz I took that verse from the “Dhammapadha” a Buddhist book which teaches the way to live happily.After all the Buddha’s teachings are universal truth. Anyway here’s that part from “Dhammapadha”. See how true is it coz the first line isn’t the only line which matches our scene but the third also.
Health is the precious gain
and contentment ,the greatest wealth.
a trustworthy person is the best kinsman,
“Nibbana” the highest bliss.
“The Buddha’s way, the path to freedom”
