Thanks Nibbida!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Bookmarked -- Thanks!

This was a complete accidental find. I've been listening to a few of the talks and I like them. The Visuddhimagga is so voluminous I'm finding it helpful to have someone give overview talks about it.

I've never heard Sayadaw U Silananda before. His voice/accent reminds me a little of Bhante Gunaratana, even though he's Burmese and Gunaratana is Sri Lankan.
