Of Infinite Freedom

sreeya devi's picture

"Who can trace the path of those who know the right food of life and, rejecting over-abundance, soar in the sky of liberation, the infinite Void without beginning? Their course is as hard to follow as that of the birds in the air".

— Dhammapada (penguin classics version) Chapter 7: Infinite Freedom

Flowers Of Life

sreeya devi's picture

"The perfume of flowers goes not against the wind.
Not even that of sandalwood, of rose-bay, or of jasmine.
But the perfume of virtue goes against the wind,
and travels to the ends of the earth"
