Thag 2.20 Sirimā Thera



“Those who praise

one who lacks samādhi,

The praise is meaningless,

since there is no samādhi. [1]


Those who insult

            one who has samādhi,

The insult is meaningless,

Since there is samādhi.” [2]



[1] “Pare ca naṁ pasaṁsanti, attā ce asamāhito; Moghaṁ pare pasaṁsanti, attā hi asamāhito.

[2] Pare ca naṁ garahanti, attā ce susamāhito; Moghaṁ pare garahanti, attā hi susamāhito”ti.

This is a gift of Dhamma
