Upcoming Sutta Study Class 

Everyone warmly invited.

Develop the mind of equilibrium.
You will always be getting praise and blame,
but do not let either affect the pise of the mind:
follow the calmness, the absence of pride.
(Sutta Nipata)

The 8 Worldly Conditions :
gain & loss, fame & defame, praise & blame, pleasure & pain
These things of humans are impermanent,
not perpetual, they are changing things, the wise know this.
And reflect on the changing nature of things,
not intoxicated with the agreeable, nor averse with the disagreeable.
Agreeability and disagreeability turned out are no more.
Knowing the state that lacks interest and grief.
Thoroughly knows that state of going beyond being.
Staying above these worldly conditions, unperturbedly still.
