Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. Although the story has been told many times before, I enjoyed this retelling of the Buddha's final encounter with Mara. In the story, the "demon" Mara attempts to tempt the Buddha to remain in Samsara with promises of worldly pleasures, but the Buddha poses a question that Mara is unable to answer. It is said that the Buddha attained true enlightenment after this encounter.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
