Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Had about 2 seconds initial flare up of enjoyment when I first saw it, then controlled myself.

This one is broken.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Thanks. Last night I sat with hopes of improving my concentration, and along comes this cat in a derby flying through the clouds.

First, make sure you have your audio turned on and up.

Now watch this video. It should start from 0:46. And don't laugh if you're compassionate!
