"Scientia potentia est" - Knowledge is power
So said Sir Francis Bacon.
I doubt he really knew how powerful and truthful his statement actually was.
But I also doubt he actually knew real knowledge - the vipassanā-ñāṇa (insight knowledge).
"Ñāṇa atthi bala" (not sure the Pāḷi is correct)
Actually, that's right because of the Five Powers, Wisdom (Paññā) is the fifth - the most powerful.
Good on you, Sir Francis.
Homage to the Lord Buddha!
(Topic not intended for the Pāḷi question, but it doesn't hurt posting it here)
I don't know much about Pāli grammar, but I believe there should be an ṃ somewhere...
On retreat until 17 February.
