Dukkara.m (Kummo) Sutta: Difficult

The Tortoise

translated from the Pali by

Maurice O’Connell Walshe

© 2007–2011

The Pali title of this sutta is based on the
PTS (Feer) edition.

…the deva spoke this
verse…:

Hard it is to keep, and hard to bear,
Recluse-life for him who lacks the skill. Obstacles abound, the fool is lost.
How long can he endure the holy life, If he cannot hold his heart in check?
Caught now here, now there, he stumbles, falls,

[The Blessed One
replied:]

As the tortoise draws into his shell Each
limb, the monk, withdrawn, with mind applied, Unattached, and doing harm to
none, Passions wholly stilled, dwells blaming none.[1]

Notes

1.

Cf. Bhagavadgiitaa
ii, 58: “He who withdraws his senses on all sides from sense-objects as
the tortoise draws in his limbs, is firmly established in wisdom.” The
same image occurs in

Hon’ble Chief Minister greets people on Gandhi Jayanti

 

Lucknow: 01 October 2011

 

The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Ms. Mayawati ji has
greeted the people of the State on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.

 

In a greetings message, Ms. Mayawati ji said that Gandhi ji
played a historic role in providing Independence to India through the principle
of non-violence, owing to which

the people of the country would always remember him with great
respect. She said the principle of non-violence has become more relevant and
important today to face the

challenge of terrorism, which endangered the world peace.
