Number two is the story of Isidasi Theri

Here's a link to the story:

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta

Greetings,

And the first one is...

SN 20.7: Ani Sutta
http://www.mahindarama.com/e-tipitaka/s ... sn20-7.htm

As for "how to search" I used Google Saffron and searched for works of poets. Sometimes putting things in quotation marks can be useful if you're looking for a particular string of words. For search tips usable in Google and Google Saffron, see: http://www.google.com/support/websearch ... wer=136861

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)


Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

I see the suttas are already covered, so maybe I can be of some help with the memory issues.

Dual N-Back is a free brain game you can play that will help increase working memory. I highly recommend it.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C. S. Lewis

There is also a thread called going mental which may interest you on the memory side of your question. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3183&view=unread#unread
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
