Daily Words of the Buddha for May 31, 2019

Pāli Word a Day for May 31, 2019 — nibbhaya — free from fear or danger, fearless, unafraid

Icchāya bajjhatī loko.
Icchāvinayāya muccati.
Icchāya vippahānena
sabbaṃ chindati bandhanaṃ.

With desire the world is tied down.
With the subduing of desire it’s freed.
With the abandoning of desire       
all bonds are cut through.

Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.69
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
