A life of dreams

Postby Modus.Ponens » Mon Mar 31, 2014 10:13 pm

I think this is one of the most beautiful teachings I ever heard. Enjoy it.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)
