Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Blazing is the Release of Mind by All Embracing Friendliness :-)

Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon, covered with thick gold plates donated by the Burmese over 4 centuries...

Thus have I heard the Blessed Buddha saying it:

Whatever, Bhikkhus and Friends, there are here of worldly merit making, all these are not worth 1/16 of
the mental release by All-Embracing Kindness... The release of mind by all-embracing kindness radiates,
emanates and shines, far surpassing all others! Like the light of the stars is not 1/16th of the moonlight,
which radiates, beams and shines, surpassing all the stars, even & exactly so: Whatever there are of simple
worldly and meritorious things, all these are not worth one 1/16th of the mental release by All-Embracing
Kindness... The release of mind by all-embracing kindness radiates, sparkles and shines, far surpassing it all...
Just as in autumn, in the last month of the rainy season, on a clear and cloudless day the sun rises and dispels
all the darkness bright and brilliant, even and quite exactly so: Whatever there are of worldly, meritorious,
admirable, and beneficial doings, all these even summed up are not worth one 1/16 of the release of mind by
All-Embracing Kindness! The release of mind, which liberates the heart, by All-Embracing Kindness, radiates,
dazzles and shines, far surpassing all these other good-doings...
