Alagaddupama Sutta

Postby Ben » Wed Jan 07, 2009 6:42 am

A discourse by Bhikkhu Bodhi on the Alagaddupama Sutta (Simile of the Snake) Mn 22 available from Beyond the Net:
Kind regards

"Only those who take to meditation with good intentions can be assured of success. With the development of the purity and the power of the mind backed by the insight into the ultimate truth of nature, one might be able to do a lot of things in the right direction for the benefit of mankind."
