Just as the ocean has a gradual shelf, a gradual slope, a gradual inclination, with a sudden drop-off only after a long stretch, in the same way this Doctrine and Discipline has a gradual training, a gradual performance, a gradual progression, with a penetration to gnosis only after a long stretch.
The fact that this Doctrine and Discipline has a gradual training, a gradual performance, a gradual progression, with a penetration to gnosis not just after a stretch:
This is the first amazing and astounding fact about this Doctrine and Discipline that, as they see it again and again...

Uposatha Sutta

Hi Ella,

I'm sorry to hear the difficult news of your loss of your father, and your mother's illness. I hope she makes a full and fast recovery.

***

Please don't hesitate to participate here at DharmaWheel. It's OK to be a beginner. It's OK if you're not yet knowledgeable about these things. You have to start somewhere, right?

Hang in there.
