Simple Words - SKYES

OK, the last word in a soon to be announced famous quote, some might have already figured it out.

skyes - means born, arise. skyes skar is birth day, where skar is actually star. skyes dngos is living matter, dngos means real, actual, real birth stuff.

I really like the "word" posts a lot; I just started making little flash cards of them (where I translate them into the actual Tibetan characters in order to practise writing). That way I will really be able to study baby-step by baby-step. ;-)

Yes, that's a good idea. It's really hard to cover everything, including drawing the letters, so if you fill in the missing parts, it's good.. It's also a classical teaching tool to not give out too much so there's an amount of personal dedication. Most of us learn this way if we have to realize it ourselves. Actually reminds me of Buddhism and the teachings...
