Casual discussion amongst spiritual friends.
What is the use of his knowledge
pertaining to the number of insects in the whole world?
Rather, inquire into his knowledge of

This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond.

And we will not be alive but a short hard time.

it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.Anguttara-Nikaya: Ekanipata: Ekadhammapali: PañhamavaggaWBB TBHT HBM AC My Page
