It Is a Poison

TEACHINGS AND IMAGES OF BUDDHA

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit
of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison
that disintegrates friendships and breaks up
pleasant relations. It is a thorn that
irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.

    “Imagine a bowl of water, agitated, stirred up muddied, put in a dark place. If a man with good eyesight were to look at the reflection of his own face in it, he would not know or see it as it really was. In the same way, Brahman, when a man dwells with his heart possessed and overwhelmed by doubt-and-wavering… then he cannot know or see, as it really is, what is to his own profit, to the profit of others, to the profit of both. Then even sacred words he has long studied are not clear to him, not to mention those he has not studied.”

    • It is generous of you to relate this most precious teaching.
      Sincerity and dedication is most important, not just for a day,
      but a lifetime. Thank you for your kind words and thoughts.
