Words from the Buddha

“If, even for the time of a finger snap,

A monk practices with a Loving heart,

I say, that monk is one who lives practicing jhāna,

One who practices the teacher’s teaching,

One who applies his instructions,

One who eats the country’s alms undeluded.

What to say then of one who would cultivate it?”
