Venerable Ajahn Chah — Nibbana Is Giving Up, Letting Go, and Being Free

Le 23 September 2014

NIBBANA Nibbana Is Giving Up, Letting Go, and Being Free The Buddha taught to see the body in the body. What does this mean? We are all familiar with the parts of the body, such as hair, nails, teeth, and skin. So how do we see the body in the body? If we recognize all these things as being impermanent, unsatisfactory, and not-self, that’s what is called seeing the body in the body.

Nov 15 - Nov 22 : Silent Illumination Chan Retreat

"Silently and serenely, one forgets all words,
Clearly and vividly everything appears before you." The above comes from the poem “Silent Illumination,” composed by Master Hongzhi Zhengjue, a 12th century lineage holder of the Caodong (Jap.

Dhammapada(Dhp XIX) - Dhammatthavagga: The Judge

DHAMMAPADA XIX - The Judge 256-257 To pass judgment hurriedly doesn’t mean you’re a judge. The wise one, weighing both the right judgment & wrong, judges others impartially — unhurriedly, in line with the Dhamma, guarding the Dhamma, guarded by Dhamma, intelligent: he’s called a judge. 258-259 Simply talking a lot doesn’t mean one is wise. Whoever’s secure — no hostility, fear — is said to be wise. Simply talking a lot doesn’t maintain the Dhamma.

Advanced in years, one’s called an old (...) continue
