Nov 15 - Nov 22 : Silent Illumination Chan Retreat

Dhammapada(Dhp XVI) Piyavagga: Dear Ones

DHAMMAPADA XVI - Piyavagga: Dear ones 209 Having applied himself to what was not his own task, and not having applied himself to what was, having disregarded the goal to grasp at what he held dear, he now envies those who kept after themselves, took themselves to task. 210-211 Don’t ever — regardless — be conjoined with what’s dear or undear. It’s painful not to see what’s dear or to see what’s not. So don’t make anything dear, for it’s dreadful to be far from what’s dear.
