Daily Words of the Buddha for September 30, 2022

Yassa nittiṇṇo paṅko,
maddito kāmakaṇṭako,
mohakkhayaṃ anuppatto,
sukhadukkhesu na vedhatī sa bhikkhū.

One who has crossed over the mire,
crushed the thorn of sensuality,
reached the ending of delusion,
is a monk undisturbed by bliss & pain.

Udāna 3.22
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
