Of Quotes, Reflection and The Dhamma 2

* Cultivate good habits…..the bad ones all grow wild.
We need to make great conscious efforts to be ever mindful of our defilements be they mental, verbal or our deeds and actions. Not only should we refrain from killing, stealing, committing sexual misconduct, using wrong speech ( lying, slander, harsh speech and gossip ) and being in a state of intoxication, but we should also practise more and more kindness, generosity, contentment, right speech and heedfulfuness.

* … trying times, try.
There will be ups and downs in our lives …such is the nature of Samsara. Are we making efforts to train and develop our minds so that we can cope better with the tribulations in life ? The more we have an understanding of the way things are, the better can we deal with trying times. There is no other way than The Dhamma Way .
