beggar's bowl

i don't do this to make money; but, if you like what i do and would like to help me continue my efforts, and if it is within your means, please consider making a donation. currently need to replace my iPad, but no income :)

gofundme - My hope here is to recover a portion of my expenses for the purchase of a badly needed new laptop, and to just to have something to live on for a little while – please see the #OccupyNuclear gofundme page for some details on my situation (the #RCDaily page has expired).

" not a monk " 
Photo of Baraka showing on my TV. Baraka is non-narrative film directed by Ron Fricke...I am not a monk (sort of an ascetic though I guess), but offer my art, meditations, blogging and activism in hope that I am helping to educate and inspire others, helping to create through my small efforts a better world for us all. I do this in order to contribute to our mutual overall well-being, in service, without expectation; and, I never run any sort of advertising on my pages (newspapers excepted as i have no control over that yet). If you enjoy my blogs and have found what I am doing here to be useful, please consider making a contribution. This will help me to continue my work.
Contributions made in appreciation of my artistic, educational, spiritual, and activist efforts, and for my free high resolution artwork downloads should be considered gifts, and are much appreciated! Anything you might offer will help, will be counted as personal income on my end, and is not tax deductible.
Be assured that any contribution will go toward sustaining my efforts - I live simply, with nothing extravagant. All I hope is to be able to keep the lights on, and make my contribution as steadily as possible.
The term mendicant (from Latin: mendicans, "begging") refers to someone who survives by begging or relies on receiving charitable donations, and is most widely used for religious followers or ascetics who depend exclusively on charity to survive and continue to do their good work.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog - I hope that you are finding it to be rewarding.


Buddhist tradition emphasizes the monk's robe and bowl as symbolic of the two things most necessary to sustain life: with one, life is supported externally (clothing, shelter); with the other, internally (food).

In many countries, as in early Buddhist practice, monks beg food and alms using a single Buddha bowl.

Monks cultivate equanimity by gratefully accepting whatever is offered them, while those who give alms believe they accumulate merit by supporting the monastic sangha. The sangha then in turn supports the wider community in certain ways.

"The Buddha himself entered jhāna, as described in the early texts, during his own quest for enlightenment, and is constantly seen in the suttas encouraging his disciples to develop jhāna as a way of achieving awakening and liberation."
