Prostrations!





Sunday 10:30 p.m.
I did my first prostration session this evening. Half and hour. I think a prostration takes about twelve seconds, so that's about one hundred and fifty prostrations. (Get me an ambulance, Jack!)So there's only ninety nine thousand eight hundred and fifty to go. I reckon you can do a hundred in twenty minutes, so that's the way to go. Def dight; def dight; def dight!

This joe on the telly prostrated his way from Mongolia to Varanasi in Northern India. He said he knew the size of the world because he'd measured it with his body. Obviously, the boy's brain had gone. I think he said it took him three years.

Actually, he said he felt dead serene when he got to Varanasi.

The can of home brew costs £8:50. That makes forty pints. It's about twenty five pence a pint and tastes like rat's piss.

I don't think it is about how fast you can do them, but with the intention correct.

Perhaps that is why you need so many.

Measuring the world with your body would certainly let you know how small you are.

Why would you want to even think about drinking something that tastes like rat's piss? Stick to water it is easier on your brain cells.

Marie! My intentions will perhaps improve as time goes on with these things. Right now, I'd just like to get them done. Of course, 100,000 might only be the first instalment. And it stopped me going for a run last night which would have been better for me, at least physically. I'm doing the prostrations with the mantra Om Vajrasattva Hum. This is a distillation of the 100 syllable one. I'm still not convinced by all this one-way-for-everyone, we always to do or we always to that routine. Hotboy

All these food and beer posts! I think you'll find that your name now translates to 胖孩 in Chinese.

Is it true that you are attempting to break Boonie's record? http://www.tegernseecc.de/pageID_8203951.html

I say! I haven't ever tasted rat's piss. What's it like?

Hotboy said...

Albert? If anyone knows about drinking rat's piss, surely we should no further than the joe who brews beer with no beer in it. Beer tastes awful. At least, my rat's piss gets me pissed! Hotboy
Mingin'! We don't have the telecommunications to work all that out. We're still on morse code up here. Hotboy

My home brew tastes so good that you don't have to be drunk to stand the taste. It all balances up.

The NSC brew kits are about half the price. Does that help?

Albert? When I was there, I thought the folk downunder had just got about everything right. A slab of Victoria Bitter please. Hotboy
