Ñāṇa atthi bala

"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!

I don't know much about Pāli grammar, but I believe there should be an ṃ somewhere...
