joy of seeing others realizing the path

"Saba Danam , Dhamma Danam Janati "

These words spoken by all the Buddhas are so ripe and intense with meaning . Am reminded reading somewhere, that when the Sangha was first formed by Lord Gautama The Buddha , and among the five , the first one to realize was the Venerable Kondana , Lord Buddha uttered " Kondana has understood , Kondana has understood , Kondana has understood ."

It is very humbling to see so many in this forum , who are living these words in both letter and spirit.

May i get established in Sila, Samadhi and Panna , living a life full of virtue and good will. A virtuous life , lived with humility and awareness is most nourishing and rewarding.

Am grateful to everyone .

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.
