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
"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."

Thank you, Bhante!

The verses of the elder monks and nuns are a source of deep inspiration.

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