One day early, since I have time and nobody objects, I’ll add the last two chapters.
Chapter 15 is titled “the discourse on being violent”, which starts off with five verses on the emotional unrest the Buddha experienced prior to awakening. It also talks of how the Buddha saw the “arrow of turmoil” that weare all pierced with, and how to remove it. The remainder of the poem is about training how to be peaceful.
What struck me...
What the world’s knotted up in,
Having fully pierced sensuality,
Train in your own full release.
What was before — let it wither away!
What will be later — do nothing with it!
Not grasping what’s in between,
You’ll live in peace.
I found it a very interesting chapter, lots of different pointers for finding peace.
