The Further Shore


Discerning persons, learned, do not develop attachment, aversion, or indifference because of pleasure or pain. This is the difference in skillfulness between wise and ordinary persons.

For learned persons who have fathomed the Dharma, clearly seeing this world and the next, desirable things don’t charm the mind, undesirable ones arouse no resistance. Their delight and rejection are scattered, gone to their end, do not exist.

Knowing the dustless, sorrowless state, they discern rightly; they have gone —beyond becoming— to the Further Shore.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Sutra of the Arrow

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.
