WEEKLY WISDOM 30/04/2012

Crush your sense of self-allure
like an autumn lily in the hand.
Nurture only the path to peace
–Unbinding–
as taught by the One Well Gone.
– Dhammapada [20]

WEEKLY WISDOM 23/04/2012

Get rid of the tendency to judge yourself
above, below, or equal to others.
A nun who has self-possession and integrity
will find the peace that nourishes
and never causes surfeit.

– Therigatha

WEEKLY WISDOM 16/04/2012

Sole dominion over the earth,
going to heaven,
lordship over all worlds:
the fruit of stream-entry
excels them.

WEEKLY WISDOM 09/04/2012

If you worship those worthy of worship,
–Awakened Ones or their disciples–
who’ve transcended
complications,
lamentation,
& grief,
who are unendangered,
fearless,
unbound:
there’s no measure for reckoning
that your merit’s ‘this much.’

– Dhammapada [13]

WEEKLY WISDOM 02/04/2012

For those who are ready, the door
To the deathless state is open.
You that have ears, give up
The conditions that bind you, and enter in.

– Majjhima Nikaya
