Whence?

images (7)From attachment springs grief,

From attachment springs fear.

For one who is wholly free from attachment

There is no grief, whence then fear?

 

From lust springs grief, from lust springs fear.

For one who is wholly free from lust

There is no grief; whence then fear?

 

From craving springs grief, from craving springs fear.

For one who is wholly free from craving

There is no grief; whence then fear?

—Buddha Shakyamuni

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.

    There is also no love.To be free of attachment is to be free of pain but at what cost? I would rather have the storms of life and the sunshine.
