River of Life


Pleasures in life are like a flowing river. You float
away on them and are carried from lifetime
to lifetime. They pursue you like a hunter
pursues his prey. The cycle of birth, death, and
rebirth goes on and on. It is a long journey
for those who do not know the dharma.

    • For some the ‘journey’ is long and painful and repeated over and over.
      It is not inviting and many seek alternatives. These are the teachings of the Dhammapada.
      Thank you very much for your interest. Enjoy the coming New Year. Eddie
