WEEKLY WISDOM 24/06/2012

One sees pleasure as suffering
and sees pain as a dart.
One sees as impermanent the peaceful feeling
that is neither pleasant nor painful.

Such a bhikkhu who sees rightly
is thereby well released.
Accomplished in knowledge, at peace,
that sage has overcome all bonds.

– Itivuttaka

Few are the people who reach the Far Shore.
These others simply scurry along this shore.
But those who practice Dhamma
in the line with the well-taught Dhamma,
will cross over the realm of Death
so hard to transcend.

WEEKLY WISDOM 11/06/2012

An evil deed, when done,
doesn’t –like ready milk–
come out right away.
It follows the fool,
smoldering like a fire
hidden in ashes.

WEEKLY WISDOM 04/06/2012

As a single slab of rock
Won’t budge in the wind,
So the wise are not moved
By praise,
By blame.

Like a deep lake,
Clear, unruffled, & calm;
So the wise become clear,
Calm,
On hearing words of the Dhamma.

– Dhammapada [6]
