- Jul 1, 2012Hi Howard,
thank you for your kind post and your concern. But you know,
considerations of the Dhamma truly helped us. Of course it was a
shock and I was worried about Lodewijk's health problems which are
also caused by old age. We can learn from such events.
This morning I heard a Thai recording, Kh Sujin was paraphrasing the
Expositor about sati and asati. Considerations about birth, old age,
sickness and death help us with a sense of urgency, not to be
neglectful with the development of understanding. I have heard this
often, but by events in life we experience ourselves this becomes
In order to be free from the cycle sati and pa~n~naa should be
developed again and again. There can be more chanda, wish-to-do, and
viriya, the four right efforts. One can see more the disadvantages of
akusala, preventing akusala that has not yet arisen. Sati must be
aware, not coming to a halt, again and again. Not laying down the
burden, not letting go of sati.
I think this is a good exhortation.
