“Just as a bird cannot fly in the sky until it’s wings are fully developed, you also cannot serve the interests of sentient beings as long as you lack the power of higher knowledge.~ ‘Lamp for the path to Awakening’ (Bodha patha pradipa) by 10th C teacher Atisa [from Common Buddhist Text]
Without the attainment of calm abiding, higher knowledge is not going to arise. Therefore keep striving , over and over again for the accomplishment of calm abiding.”
This is this week’s topic for contemplation, reflection and sharing at the online virtual ‘Sit-and-Share’ meditation meeting via Skype from 7:45 pm ready for a prompt start at 8 pm (UK time).
This week’s ‘Sit-and-Share’ host is Paul.
