Happy Wesak Day 2009.

Just as a fletcher straightens
an arrow shaft,
even so the discerning man
straightens his mind -
so fickle and unsteady,
so difficult to guard and control.
~ The Mind, Dhammapada.

the craving of one given to heedless living
grows like a creeper
like the monkey seeking fruits
in the forest
he leaps from life to life
(tasting the fruit of his Karma)
~ Craving, Dhammapada.
