Ajahn Brahm on joy in practice
- "The motto of physical fitness might be 'no pain - no gain,' but the motto of meditation is 'no joy - no mindfulness."
~ Ajahn Brahm (Brahmavamso), "Mindfulness, Bliss, and Beyond: A Meditator's Handbook," newly released by Wisdom Publications, August 2006, from the chapter entitled, "Using Variety to Freshen Up Our Practice," leading up to a discussion on Metta meditation.
