Impermanence and Death
« on: December 21, 2009, 06:11:57 AM »
I am posting what I think is one of my favourite articles on all of web. It's long but very gripping, very alarming. It's about Impermanence and death. Every great saint, who walked on the path of the Dhamma, did so after having realized death was knocking at the doors. The same was the reason the Buddha once exhorted his monks, when he saw them becoming lazy, saying, what has turned out to be one of my favourite quotes, "Move on Bhikkus, Move on"

Anytime I feel doubts creeping up about the path, or get drawn too much into worldly affairs, I read this and it just puts things into perspective so nicely for me.

I hope this can inspire you all.

Perform wholesome actions,
