Daily Words of the Buddha for January 27, 2018

Pāli Word a Day for January 27, 2018 — tareti — to go or get through, to cross (a river), pass over, traverse; to get beyond, to surmount, overcome, esp. oghaṃ (the great flood of life, desire, ignorance, etc.)

Yathāpi pabbato selo,
acalo suppatiṭṭhito,
evaṃ mohakkhayā bhikkhu,
pabbatova na vedhatī.

Just as a mountain of rock,
is unwavering, well-settled,
so the monk whose delusion is ended,
like a mountain, is undisturbed.

Udāna 3.24
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
