WEEKLY WISDOM 29/05/2017

Just as a tree, though cut down, sprouts up again if its roots remain uncut and firm, even so, until the craving that lies dormant is rooted out, suffering springs up again and again.

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

WEEKLY WISDOM 15/05/2017

Just as sharp-bladed grass,
if wrongly held,
wounds the very hand that holds it–
the contemplative life, if wrongly grasped,
drags you down to hell.

– Dhammapada [22]

WEEKLY WISDOM 08/05/2017

The one who beholds that which has become as become
Passes beyond that becoming
And is released from craving for sensation.
In that which really is, he understands becoming.
Free from longing for birth or death,
He finds the true meaning of the end of becoming.

– Itivuttaka Sutta
