Death

While I study and work here, in UI, there has been many death:

1. dhini 2001 (tenggelam)
2. student from class 2003 (tenggelam)
3. haryanto (dirampok di kereta)
4. student from class 2002 (ditikam di jalan)
5. student from class 2004 (last week) (terkena banjir)
6. swastika (psiko 2005) (26 Feb) (jatuh dari motor)

Kalau dilihat, mereka orang-orang yang sepertinya bernasib baik (at least selama hidup or if you compare them with me...), tapi tiba-tiba kematian datang.

Life is so unpredictable.

Three Controllers

Sila is to control body and speech.
Meditation is to control mind.
Wisdom is to control the sankhara.

When practicing sila, be aware of the body and speech.
When practicing meditation, be aware of the mind.
When practicing wisdom, be aware of the reality.

Untuk dikejar, untuk ditinggalkan

Ada hal untuk dikejar...
Ada hal untuk ditinggalkan.

Mengapa kita harus mengejar dan meninggalkan?
Untuk maju ke depan.

Bagaimana jika kita mengejar yang harus dikejar dan yang harus ditinggalkan?
Kita akan tetap berada di tempat kita sekarang.

Bagaimana jika kita tidak mengejar keduanya?
Kita akan tetap berada di tempat kita sekarang.

Bagaimana jika kita mengejar yang harus ditinggalkan?
Kita akan mundur ke belakang.

How Much

Ada banyak obat,
Tapi kalau kita meminum semuanya,
Kita akan mati.

Ada banyak Dhamma,
Tapi kalau kita membaca semuanya,
Waktu kita akan habis.

Tidak bisakah kita mengambil satu kalimat
atau satu kata
Dan mengembangkannya hingga tujuan tercapai

Focus on one thing
Chanda, viriya need a focussed thing to develop

Skill of wisdom

Knowledge is knowing, we can get it by reading of listening.

Wisdom is a skill, we can get it by developing (bhavana).

Someone with great knowledge could be a foolish too.
