Let me tell you, doing 100 prostrations can work up a bit of a sweat, now. I think I can lose a ton of weight, then market this and make a fortune. (For the good of all sentient beings, of course.) Yep, 100 down, only 111,011 left to go on the FIRST preliminary! Whew--eeee, look at me go!!
I think I understand all too well now why the First Noble Truth is "suffering exists," and why Buddhists have to reincarnate -- it's going to take at least a few lives just to do my prelims.
And on another note, sure wish I'd known I was going to become a Buddhist when I picked out this apartment with wood floors.
