@alecanque:matrix.orgshomonWas Pythagoras more or less a contemporary of Asoka?21:28:00
@marzio.f:matrix.orgmarzio.fIf you mean Ashoka the Mauryan emperor then not really, pythagoras was born about 200 years earlier21:29:42
@marzio.f:matrix.orgmarzio.fAshoka was closer to socrates and plato 21:30:04

@clover:ironrobin.netMaitrīCompassionate presence is possibly the most healing quality we can offer another. It is needed if we are to begin to heal some of our core emotional and psychological wounds both within ourselves and others. This book delves into the psychological roots of our human suffering from early wounding onwards to explore how the practice of Chenrezig can be a profound and powerful healing resource. Rob Preece brings together years of experience as both psychotherapist and Buddhist teacher to illuminate a way of practice that is fresh, creative and highly relevant to health and well-being in our contemporary life. https://www.abebooks.co.uk/9781739940225/Chenrezig-Embodying-Compassionate-Presence-Essence-1739940229/plp18:54:18

"Trying to get things right is a beneficial intellectual virtue. Trying to get everyone else to acknowledge that you’re right is just ego attachment."
Instead of trying to get people to acknowledge that you're right you can discuss with them and test if you really are right or end up learning something new, win win situation
