Alagaddupama Sutta

Postby Ben » Wed Jan 07, 2009 6:42 am

A discourse by Bhikkhu Bodhi on the Alagaddupama Sutta (Simile of the Snake) Mn 22 available from Beyond the Net:
Kind regards

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

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725
