Raining Faith »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


How does rightly verified Faith lead to Nibbāna?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, just exactly as, when rain pours down in heavy drops on a mountain,
then the water runs down the slope, and fills the clefts, gullies, and creeks.
When these brim over, then they replenish the pools, which fill up the lakes,
which supply the rivers, which run out in the great ocean...
Similarly for any Noble Disciple, do verified confidence in the Three Jewels
Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha, and morality praised by the Nobles
flow onwards and beyond, leading to eradication of the 3 Mental Fermentations.
