1 A Buddhist parable on attachment on Sun Mar 07, 2010 7:14 pm


I thought this was a good parable concerning attachment.
For the seasoned practitioner, even the Dharma (teachings of the Buddha) must not become an attachment. As an analogy, to clean one's shirt, it is necessary to use soap. However, if the soap is not then rinsed out, the garment will not be truly clean. Similarly, the practitioner's mind will not be fully liberated until he severs attachment to everything, including the Dharma itself.

The obscure we see eventually. The completely obvious, it seems, takes longer. - Edward R. Murrow
