Thanks Nibbida!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

This was a complete accidental find. I've been listening to a few of the talks and I like them. The Visuddhimagga is so voluminous I'm finding it helpful to have someone give overview talks about it.

I've never heard Sayadaw U Silananda before. His voice/accent reminds me a little of Bhante Gunaratana, even though he's Burmese and Gunaratana is Sri Lankan.
