[sticky entry] Sticky: Hi there! Привет!

Silence is golden. I like reaping riches.
English is not my mothertongue. Writing in English is just one of the practices I find being useful.

Молчание - золото. Я люблю стяжать богатства.
Английский - не мой родной язык. Писать по-английски - всего лишь одна из практик, которые кажутся мне полезными.

I'm shocked at what is happening in Russia:

- Shocked at homophobic hysteria.
- Shocked at the gifts of magi worshipping.
- Shocked at defiant attitude to the events in Ukraine.
- Shocked at surly rhetoric about 'The Rain' channel.

I can't say I fully understand what's going on and why it is going on. This everything is quite unexpected and is very outrageous. It seems that I've completely lost the touch with the Russian flow of events, with the Russian flow of reality. Though it is sad to some extent it seems that I feel happy to be not involved in this stuff. The only thing that is left for me is gazing in astonishment and being sorry.

I find such discoveries fascinating: "In fact Buddhism declines existence of what is termed jiva (soul) in Hindu and in Jainu traditions. Some passages from early Buddhist texts concerning the non-existence of the soul so closely resemble reasonings of David Hume in his "Treatise of Human Nature", that 19th-century Buddhologists were astonished. Such theories being in the West the domain of sceptical, free- and even anti-religious thinking, were put in Buddhism into purely religious context."
