“Sensual pleasures are like salt water;~ The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas [#21] by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo
The more you partake of them, the more your craving will increase.
Therefore, when something arouses attachment,
To abandon it immediately is the practice of a Bodhisattva.”
The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to turn away immediately~ Alternative translation : The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas [#21] by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo
From those things which bring desire and attachment.
For the pleasure of the senses are just like salty water:
The more we taste them, the more our thirst increases.”
