THE NOBLE WAY is for NIBBANA, nothing else!
One way is to gain name and fame. Quite another is the way to Nibbana!
Seeing this, let the Bhikkhu and the true disciple of the Buddha, reject both name, fame and gain,
seeking only the comfort & bliss of solitary seclusion.

Better to conquer yourself than others.
When you’ve trained yourself,
living in constant self-control,
neither a deva (God) nor gandhabba,
nor a Mara (Evil) banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.

– Dhammapada [8]

Whoever harasses
an innocent man,
a man pure, without blemish;
the evil comes right back to the fool
like fine dust
thrown against the wind.

When the ear hears, observe the mind. Does it get caught up and make a story out of the sound? Is it disturbed? You can know this, stay with it, be aware. At times you may want to escape from the sounds, but that is not the way out. You must escape through awareness.

– Ajahn Chah, “Still Forest Pool”
