Just as the radiance of all the stars does not equal a sixteenth part of the moon’s radiance, but the moon’s radiance surpasses them and shines forth, bright and brilliant, even so, whatever grounds there are for making merit productive of a future birth, all these do not equal a sixteenth part of the mind-release of loving-kindness. The mind-release of loving-kindness surpasses them and shines forth, bright and brilliant.
“A single day lived awake to the undying state is of greater value than a hundred years lived without recognizing deathlessness.”
Few among men are those who cross to the farther shore. The rest, the bulk of men, only run up and down the hither bank.
“Bhikkhus, there are these three kinds of search…”
Sensual search, the search for being, The search for a holy life of one Who takes his stand upon a view And holds it tightly as the truth— These are heapings of defilements.
For a bhikkhu wholly dispassionate And freed by the destruction of craving, Searches have been relinquished And uprooted the standpoint of views. With the destruction of searches a bhikkhu Is free from desire and doubt.
One who knows the “All” in every way, Who is not attached to anything, Having fully understood the “All,” Has overcome all suffering.
