"A rose between two thorns"

Post by Sam Vara »

A friend just sent me this picture, of Ajahn Sucitto at a meeting at Cittaviveka on Sunday. I'm the thorn on the far side.

You look quite happy. Also a lovely picture on the wall.
“In the same way, great king, when a bhikkhu sees that these five hindrances are unabandoned within himself, he regards that as a debt, as a sickness, as confinement in prison, as slavery, as a desert road.

“But when he sees that these five hindrances have been abandoned within himself, he regards that as freedom from debt, as good health, as release from prison, as freedom from slavery, as a place of safety.”

Don't be so humble, you're not that great.

Yes don't fall to praise. In that picture you look to be practising "this body is not me, not mine, not myself...". Keep at that :tongue:
