Virtual Sit-and-Share Topic 20-05-2019

“At death a person abandons
what he supposes as mine.
Realizing this, the wise
shouldn’t incline
to be devoted to mine-ness.”

~ Jara Sutta: Old Age – translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu


“That which a man imagines to be his
will disappear at death.
Knowing this a wise man
will have no attachment (to anything).”

~ Jara Sutta: Old Age – translated from the Pali by John D. Ireland
