Venerable Shravasti Dhammika
The Buddha’s Words of Wisdom
The fool who listens to the Conqueror’s teachings
With a hostile mind
Does not grow in the good Dhamma
Any more than a rotten seed grows in the field.
But one who listens to the Conqueror’s teachings
With a joyful mind,
Having destroyed the defilement,
Realized the unshakable state,
And attained the highest peace—He is cooled and without defilements.
