"I don't envision a single thing that, when developed & cultivated, leads to such great benefit as the mind. The mind, when developed & cultivated, leads to great benefit."

"I don't envision a single thing that, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about such suffering & stress as the mind. The mind, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about suffering & stress."

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

:hello: Because “Pain is certain, suffering is optional.” , and “Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.” , and “You only lose what you cling to.” and “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” as “In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.” and “There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path.” :clap:
ImageTo become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to nirvana.
If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path. He who experiences the unity of life sees his own Self in all beings, and all beings in his own Self.Image
