Fields are spoiled by weeds;
people, by passion.
So what’s given to those
free of passion
bears great fruit.

Fields are spoiled by weeds;
people, by aversion.

WEEKLY WISDOM 12/08/2013

When a person has lived properly and acted generously, he grasps the way things are. He is not dependent on attachments; he is free from anger and aversions; what he does becomes perfect action.

The pureness of perfectly balanced action based on seeing the way things are–this is freedom and the ending of ignorance.

– Sutta Nipata

WEEKLY WISDOM 05/08/2013

Like a frontier fortress,
guarded inside & out,
guard yourself.
Don’t let the moment pass by.
Those for whom the moment is past
grieve, consigned to hell.

– Dhammapada [22]
