Buddhism in (your) two words

Postby Upasaka Sumana » Mon Jul 19, 2010 1:26 pm

abandon desire
Metta,
Sumana

Rather light a candle than complain about darkness.
~Chinese proverb


The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
~Nelson Mandela


Think not lightly of evil, saying, "It will not come to me." Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the fool, gathering it little by little, fills himself with evil.
Think not lightly of good, saying, "It will not come to me." Drop by drop is the water pot filled. Likewise, the wise man, gathering it little by little, fills himself with good.

~Dhp. 121-122

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

Hi, all -

I can think of a bundle of "two words" ! :thinking:

i. Letting Go.
ii. Total Release
iii. Not Self
iv. Clear Knowing
v. Right View
vi. Right Effort
vi. Right Mindfulness
etc.

Unbinding Path
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." -- Heraclitus

A path
But if this neutral feeling that has arisen is conditioned by the body which is impermanent, compounded and dependently arisen, how could such a neutral feeling be permanent? - SN 36.7
