More Dhamma for Reflection

"Behold those who struggle after petty ambitions,
like fish in a stream that is rapidly drying up. Seeing
this, let your life be lived unselfishly, unshaken, un-
attached to various states of becoming."

--Guhattaka Sutta (Sn. 777)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"A fire burns in dependence upon its fuel. When
that is used up, if it does not get any more fuel,
the fire goes out."

--Aggi Vacchagotta Sutta (MN 72:19)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Who creates no karma obtains the Dharma."

"What the present mind-state sows, the next mind-
state reaps...but if the present mind-state sows
nothing, the next mind-state reaps nothing."

--Bodhidharma, Wake-up Sermon
