The Stork Is The Bird Of War

Postby Jhana4 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 12:18 pm

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Listen to the story rather than read to get the full effect.

Interesting. I usually think of reading about the subject getting the full effect :)

I may have to rethink my views on compulsory sterilisation for some people. :juggling:
