Buddhist Discourses NULL


"Nothing in all the world is left out or remains apart from the heart releasing loving-kindness."

"The wise do not rate themselves with the distinguished, nor with the lowest, nor with ordinary people; calm and unselfish, they are free from possessiveness, they hold on to nothing as theirs and reject nothing as not theirs."

"When there is nothing in the world that can trigger agitation, then one is free from the pain of longing."
