    What do you think of this verse? and what does it mean to you?
    I have asked questions about e-mail I receive from a Bhikkhu in Sri Lanka before but this one is slightly different, it is a quote from the Sutta’s which I think is quite famous.
    Make an island of yourself;
    Make yourself into your lamp!
    Make yourself your refuge;
    There is no other refuge.
    Make the Dhamma your island,
    Make the Dhamma your light!
    Make the Dhamma your refuge;
    There is no other safe haven.
    What are your thoughts about this Verse?
    here are my thoughts if you are interested, http://manapa.multiply.com/journal/item/187 It is also on my 360 blog but I have been having problems with getting it up so I’ve used my multiply blog.
    As always I ask this with Metta
    (((((May all find what they need)))))
    Thank you for answering
