Daily Words of the Buddha ~ July 04, 2014

sunset d nm
Yo ca mettaṃ bhāvayati
Appamāṇaṃ paṭissato
Tanū saṃyojanā honti,
Passato upadhikkhayaṃ.

For one who mindfully develops
Boundless loving-kindness
Seeing the destruction of clinging,
The fetters are worn away.

Itivuttaka 1.27

The Udāna and the Itivuttaka, trans. John D. Ireland
