From Virtue

From non-remorse, gladness naturally arises,

leading naturally to joy,

leading naturally to serenity,

leading naturally to happiness,

leading naturally to a concentrated mind,

leading naturally to seeing things as they really are,

leading naturally to revulsion and dispassion for samsara,

leading naturally to knowledge and liberation.

Thus, the preceding states flow into the succeeding states;

and the succeeding states bring the preceding states to perfection,

going from the near shore to the far shore of Nirvana.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, AN 10.2

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.
