Venerable Acariya Maha Boowa ~Nanasampanno

Where the Work of a Bhikkhu Comes to an End

"...The heart is deluded in the five Khandhas. It takes the creations of the five Khandhas as the objects of it's pleasure and sorrow for Culpas and Culpas, while Vi~n~naana flicks on and off, on and off.

It is similar to a lightening flash, or the light that comes from the firefly in the night..."
