Alagaddupama Sutta

Post by Ben » Wed Jan 07, 2009 6:42 am

A discourse by Bhikkhu Bodhi on the Alagaddupama Sutta (Simile of the Snake) Mn 22 available from Beyond the Net:" onclick=";return false;
Kind regards

“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
