“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Hi Mike, Ben, Dhammanando &All
I didn't even think of A2I for any notes etc, but then again I only ever look on their for Agahn Geoffs Esseys or the Suttas but the sutta study pdf is on page 2 of MN74 if you are interested!

I will have a look at the Rtf file this afternoon after work,

and Thanks Dhammanando probably the better reason than the strictly clasical one I thoughtit was, there I co making ass u me

Manapa


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Hello all,

I've always found Bhikkhu Bodhi's explanations of benefit:

Chapter on Right View (Samma Ditthi) - The Noble Eightfold Path - Bhikkhu Bodhi
