"Live this day as if will be your last."

"Live this day as if will be your last. Remember that you will only find 'tomorrow' on the calenders of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you ever utter are, 'if l had my life to live over again.' Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your year! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again."
~ Og Mandino
Vesak Day ~ June 9th, 2012
Will absolutely have no effects on us if we don't do our daily practice. Life too is uncertain. There's no guarantee for tomorrow. What if tomorrow doesn't come?
Vesak Day is an everyday event. It's here and now.
May we take full advantage of the Dhamma as if will be our last. Taking nothing for granted and always be grateful for being a human.
