WEEKLY WISDOM 26/05/2014

In one who has gone the full distance,
is free from sorrow,
is fully released
in all respects, has abandoned all bonds:
no fever is found.

Delightful wilds
where crowds don’t delight,
those free from passion delight,
for they’re not searching
for sensual pleasures.

Speak not harshly to anyone. Those thus addressed will retort. Painful, indeed, is vindictive speech. Blows in exchange may bruise you. If, like a cracked gong, you silence yourself, you have already attained Nibbana: no vindictiveness will be found in you.

WEEKLY WISDOM 05/05/2014

Drink deeply. Live in serenity and joy.
The wise person delights in the truth
And follows the law of the awakened.

The farmer channels water to his land.
The fletcher whittles his arrows.
And the carpenter turns his wood.
So the wise direct their mind.

– Dhammapada
