Bodhi Leaves


singleleaf

“Blissful is solitude with contentment, for who beholds the dharma having heard it. Blissful is non-harming in this world, for who has self-control towards all beings. Blissful is dispassion in this world for who rises above sense desires. Yet, subduing the attitude of “I am”, is indeed the most blissful.”

- the Buddha in Udana (mucalinda-varga)
