Daily Words of the Buddha ~ September 23, 2014

double rainbow farmSabbā āsattiyo chetvā,
vineyya hadaye daraṃ,
upasanto sukhaṃ seti,
santiṃ pappuyya cetasā.

With all one’s attachments cut,
with the heart’s pining subdued,
calm and serene and happy is one,
for one has attained peace of mind.

Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.242

Gemstones of the Good Dhamma,
compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
