Sound of Silence

Postby Mr Man » Thu Dec 20, 2012 7:35 pm

There are extracts from Ajahn Amaro’s recently published book Inner Listening: Meditation on the Sound of Silence in the latest Amaravati newsletter, which may be of interest to some.
Here is a link http://www.fsnewsletter.amaravati.org/pdf/2013_FSNewsletter.pdf#page=26 It might take a little time to download as it is in a largish PDF file

“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."
