This being is bound to samsara, kamma is his means for going beyond. -- SN I, 38.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” HPatDH p.723

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

“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.”

Welcome from your neighbour in San Antonio!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.
