Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

The 10 Contemplations is Daily  Buddhist Routine!


The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus and friends: There is this one contemplation, which when often practised
and developed leads to the complete turning away from the world, to detachment,
to stilling, to ceasing, to Peace, to final penetrating knowledge, to Enlightenment,
and thus to Nibbāna... Any Noble Disciple, who by gradual progress has understood
this refined Dhamma, often dwells in this state. Which is that unique contemplation?
It is reflecting over the ethic qualities of own moral purity exactly like this:
The Noble Disciple reviews and recollects his own morality (Sīla), which is unbroken,
immaculate, unspotted, unsoiled, productive of release, praised by the clever, yet
not stiff by pride, which leads to concentration... Source: Anguttara Nikāya 6:10

Comments:
Major moral transgressions induce downfall! Medium moral impurities blocks any
spiritual progress in this life, if not repaired. Even microscopic moral pollutants
exclude attainment of meditative jhāna absorption despite prolonged efforts...
