Inspiring Words of Wisdom

Postby Sanjay PS » Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:35 pm

Arhant Venerable Ajhan Cha encapsulates wisdom so nicely ,

"Having a sense of superiority
means to open the gates to conceit , pride and prejudice .

A sense of inferiority opens the gates to worthlessness and lassitude .

Seeing as equals , one closes the gates to reverence and humility .

An awakened person possesses none , but lives in the wisdom of here and now
. "

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

"When any monk or brahman, with form (and the rest) as the means, which is impermanent, suffering and subject to change, sees thus 'I am superior' or 'I am equal' or 'I am inferior,' what is that if not blindness to what actually is?"
S. 22:49
The man who wants to avoid grotesque collapses should not look for anything to fulfill him in space and time.
