Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

The Evaporator of all Evil States of Mind!


The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus and Friends: Once the mental release by infinite Friendliness
has been developed, frequently practised, firmly established, expanded,
made a vehicle, foundation, and brought to full perfection, then it will be
impossible
for ill-will to take possession of the mind, since this fine mental
release by infinite Friendliness is the irreversible liberation from all ill-will!
Once the mental release by compassionate Pity and tender understanding
has been developed, frequently practised, firmly established, expanded,
made a vehicle, foundation, and brought to full perfection, then it will be
impossible
for cruelty to take possession of the mind, since the mental
release by compassionate Pity is the irreversible liberation from all cruelty!
Once the mental release by mutual Joy rejoicing in other being's success
has been developed, frequently practised, firmly established, expanded,
made a vehicle, foundation, and brought to full perfection, then it will be
impossible for discontent to obsess the mind, since this fine mental release
by mutual Joy is indeed the irreversible liberation from all discontent!
Once the mental release by serene, still and imperturbable Equanimity
has been developed, frequently practised, firmly established, expanded,
made a vehicle, foundation, and brought to full perfection, then it will be
impossible for greed & lust to take possession of and obsess the mind, for
release by imperturbable Equanimity is the deliverance from all greed!



The 4 supreme mental attitudes (Brahmavihāra) are thus:
Friendliness, Pity, Mutual Joy and Equanimity!
