The Essential

Those who mistake the unessential to be essential
and the essential to be unessential,
dwelling in wrong thoughts,
never arrive at the essential.

-The Buddha (Dhammapada 11)

Before we agree to this piece of the advice by the Buddha,
Before we believe we do not mistake the unessential to be essential,
Before we believe we are dwelling in right thoughts leading to the essential,
Let us ask ourselves-
Do we know what is essential?
This is the essential question that leads to the Third Noble Truth- Nirvana. JoinMailingList4LatestUpdates/Reply
