Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

    Sweet is Verbal, Bodily and Mental Silence!

 



The Blessed Buddha once said:

Kāyamunim vācāmunim,

manomunimanāsavam,

munim moneyyasampannam.

Āhu ninhātapāpakam.

Silenced in body, Silenced in speech,

Silenced in mind, without agitation,

blessed with silence is the sage.

Such One is truly washed of evil.
Itivuttaka 3.67

 



SILENCED
If silent as a broken bell,
such one is close to Nibbāna,
and far away from arrogance.

Dhammapada 134
