To all or None,

What are the 7 Fruits of the Abilities?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus, there are these 5 abilities. What five?

1: The Ability of Faith.
2: The Ability of Energy.
3: The Ability of Awareness.
4: The Ability of Concentration.
5: The Ability of Understanding.

When these 5 abilities have been developed & cultivated, then
seven supreme fruits and excellent benefits may be expected!
What are these seven fruits and advantageous benefits?
1: One attains final knowledge early in this very life. If not then;
2: One attains final knowledge at the time of death. If not then;
3: One having cut the 5 lower chains attains Nibbāna in between;

4: One attains Nibbāna upon landing in the pure abodes. If not then;

5: One attains Nibbāna in the pure abodes without effort. If not then;

6: One attains Nibbāna in the pure abodes with some effort. If not then;
7: One is bound Upstream, heading towards the Akanittha realm.
When, Bhikkhus, these five mental abilities have been developed and
cultivated, these seven sublime fruits and benefits may be expected

To all or none
I n the second watch of the night when Buddha attained enlightenment,he gained another kind of knowledge,which complemented his knowledge of rebith:that of
KARMA,the natural law of cause and effect.what follows are his words:
"With the heavenly eye,purified and beyond the range of human vision,Isaw how beings vanish and come to be again.Isaw high and low,brilliant and insignificant,and how each obtained according to his karma a favorable or painful rebirth.

The truth and the driving force behind rebirth is what is called KARMA.KARMA is
often misunderstood in the West as fate of predestination;it is best thought of as
the infaillible law of cause and effect that governs the Universe.The word karma literally means "action"and karma is both the power latent within actions,and the results our actions bring.

Extracted from TheTibetan Book of Living and Dying.

Friends:

Sweet is Mental, Verbal, and Bodily Silence!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Kāyamunim vacamunim,
manomunimanāsavam,
munim moneyyasampannam.
Ahu ninhātapāpakam.



Silenced in body, silenced in speech,
silenced in mind, without inner noise,
blessed with silence is the sage!
He is truly washed of all evil...
Itivuttaka 3.67

Calm is his mind.
Calm is his speech.
Calm is his behaviour.
So is the tranquillity;
So is the serenity;
of one freed by the insight
of right understanding...
Dhammapada 96
Sambādhe vāpi vindanti,
dhammam nibbānapattiyā
ye satim paccalatthamsu
sammā te susamāhitā.

Even when obstacles crowd in,
then the path to Nibbāna can be won
by those who establish awareness,
perfect focus and concentration.
Samyutta Nikāya 1.88

To all or none,
Sent to me by Banthe from Sri-Lanka



A radiant deity once asked the Buddha:
Those who dwell deep in the forest,
Peacefully living the Noble life,
Eating only a single meal a day,
Why is their appearance so serene?

The Blesses Buddha responded:
They do not trouble over the past,
Nor do they crave for any future,
They live just with what is present,
Therefore are their looks so serene!

By urging towards the yet unreal future,
By longing back into a forever lost past,
Fools verily dry up and wither away,
Like a green creeper cut at the root...

Source,Banthe from Sri-Lanka.

The Blessed Buddha once said:
Bhikkhus and Friends: There are these four infinite mental states:
The Bhikkhu pervades all beings with all-embracing friendliness...
The Bhikkhu encompass all creatures with universal & endless pity...
The Bhikkhu permeates all individuals with infinite and mutual joy...
The Bhikkhu suffuses all living mortals with unlimited equanimity...
First in one direction, then in the 2nd, then the 3rd, & finally the 4th ,
above, below, all around, in every location, unifying himself with all beings,
he pervades the entire universe with a kind and all-embracing friendliness,
with an all-encircling compassion & pity, with an all-enveloping mutual and
altruistic joy, and with an all-encompassing imperturbable equanimity, fully
utilizing a refined mind, made great, vast, profound, infinite, immeasurable,
and released from all hate, anger, irritation, opposition and stubbornness...

Friends:

Mettã is likened to a Mother's Love:



The Blessed Buddha once said:
As a mother would, even with risk for her own life, protect her only child,
so let us cultivate immeasurable loving-kindness towards all living beings!

To all or none.
Source Banthe Sri-Lanka

The Blessed Gotama Buddha once explained:
Bhikkhus & friends, imagine a single floating ring drifting in the great oceans!
Imagine also a blind turtle, which surfaces only once every hundred years...
What do you think, Bhikkhus, would that blind turtle by chance often dive
right up under this randomly drifting single ring & insert its neck in the hole?
If it ever would at all, Sir, it would only happen after an incredibly long time!
Yet, Bhikkhus & friends, I tell you, that this would happen sooner, than a fool,
who has fallen into the lower worlds would again regain this rare human state...
Why so? Because down there exists neither behaviour guided by the Dhamma,
nor any honesty, nor any morality, nor any good doing or meritorious activity...
There prevails only this evil: beat or be beaten, eat or be eaten, cruel merciless
killing and voraciously swallowing up of any weak. Why is it so primitive there?
Because, Bhikkhus, there nobody have seen these 4 Noble Truths! What four?
All this is Suffering; This Greedy Craving is the sole Cause of all Suffering;
No Craving is the End of Suffering; The Noble 8-fold Way Ends all Suffering,
Therefore should an effort be made NOW to understand the 4 Noble Truths!
