There's Only Gain, Never Loss


ByBuddhadasa Bhikkhu



 

There's Only Gain, Never Loss

Look well, there's only profit and never loss.
When losing a child or a spouse, one still receives
life's genuine knowledge that depends on no-one
how everything proceeds according to its evil and good.

 

This kind of knowledge brightens the heart,
seeing the way to Nibbana, the only true support.
Plunging forward to reach the goal of our lives,
don't get all bothered and make yourself suffer!

 

One ought to know only profit and never loss,
but end up losing because of misguided thinking.
Ponder carefully, there's only gain and no anxiety,
being "Truly Buddhist" at the pinnacle of Dhamma.
