Thag 1094

When shall I dwell, having taken a sharp sword made of wisdom, and having cut the creeper of craving, producer of fear, bringer of pain, twining around everywhere? When indeed will it be? -- Thag 1094
"One cannot step twice into the same river, nor can one grasp any mortal substance in a stable condition, but it scatters and again gathers; it forms and dissolves, and approaches and departs."

- Hereclitus

Thank you, Bhante!

The verses of the elder monks and nuns are a source of deep inspiration.
"One cannot step twice into the same river, nor can one grasp any mortal substance in a stable condition, but it scatters and again gathers; it forms and dissolves, and approaches and departs."

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
-Dhp. 183
