The Eco Fridge

eco_fridgeTake a smaller pot and put it inside of a larger pot. Fill the space in between them with wet sand, and cover the top with a wet cloth. When the water evaporates, it pulls the heat out with it, making the inside cold. It’s a natural, cheap, easy to use and even portable refrigerator. So, instead of perishable foods rotting after only three days, they can last up to three weeks using this method

The Eightfold Path

Buddha Himself, discovered the eightfold path as the only way to Nirvana. It avoids the extreme of self-torture that weakens one’s intellect and the extreme of self-indulgence that retards spiritual progress. It consists of the following eight factors:

» Right Thoughts
» Right Speech
» Right Action
» Right Livelihood
» Right Effort
» Right Mindfulness
» Right Concentration


is the knowledge of the Four Noble Truths. In other words, it is the understanding of oneself as one really is.

The keynote of Buddhism is this Right Understanding. Buddhism, as such, is based on knowledge and not on unreasonable belief.

are threefold. They are:

  • The thoughts of renunciation which are opposed to sense-pleasures. Release attachments to objects
  • Kind Thoughts which are opposed to ill will.
  • Thoughts of harmlessness which are opposed to cruelty. These tend to purify the mind.

deals with refraining from falsehood, stealing, slandering, harsh words and frivolous talks

deals with refraining from killing, stealing and lack of chastity. It helps one to develop a character that is self-controlled and mindful of rights of others.

deals with the five kinds of trades that should be avoided by a lay disciple. They are:

  • trade in deadly weapons
  • trade in animals for slaughter
  • trade in slavery
  • trade in intoxicants
  • trade in poisons

Right Livelihood means earning one’s living in a way that is not harmful to others.

is fourfold, namely:

  • the endeavor to discard evil that has already arisen.
  • the endeavor to prevent the arising of evil.
  • the endeavor to develop that good which has already arisen.
  • the endeavor to promote that good which has not already arisen.

Effort is needed to cultivate Good Conduct or develop one’s mind, because we are often distracted or tempted to take the easy way out of things. The Buddha teaches that attaining happiness and Enlightenment depends upon one’s own efforts. Effort is the root of all achievement. If one wants to get to the top of a mountain, just sitting at the foot thinking about it will not bring one there. It is by making the effort of climbing up the mountain, step by step, that eventually the summit is reached. Thus, no matter how great the Buddha’s achievement may be, or how excellent His Teaching is, one must put the Teaching into practice before desired results can be obtained.

is also fourfold:

  • mindfulness with regard to body
  • mindfulness with regard to feeling
  • mindfulness with regard to mind
  • mindfulness with regard to mental objects.

Right Mindfulness is the awareness of one’s deeds, words and thoughts.

Meditation means the gradual process of training the mind to focus on a single object and to remain fixed upon the object without wavering. The constant practice of meditation helps to develop a calm and concentrated mind and helps to prepare for the ultimate attainment of Wisdom and Enlightenment.
