Sound Reason »
Drop of Dhamma Delight!


Calm is Sound Realistic Reason...

Buddha praised
this simple contemplation for everyday progress:
Five things have been well taught by the Blessed One who knows and sees,
the Purified One, Perfectly Self-Enlightened by himself, that is, the five
subjects for daily recollection by women and men, monks and householders.
What are the five?
1: I am prone to decay, I am not yet beyond this decay.
2: I am prone to get a disease, I am not yet beyond this disease.
3: I am prone to die, I have not yet got beyond this certainty of death.
4: All I hold as mine, dear and delightful, will change, crumble and then vanish.
5: I am the owner of my kamma, born of my kamma, created and conditioned
by my kamma, inheritor of my kamma, related and joined to my kamma, my life
now is supported by my prior kamma (=behaviour). Whatever kamma I will do,
whether good or evil, only I will come to experience the later resulting effects!
Anguttara Nikāya V, 57
