Dharma Talks By Late Phra Ajhan Yantra Amaro

Love of a Buddha

If you don't know how to love,
You'll end up in suffering.
Love of a Buddha means giving, helping, and Metta.
Let us give without claiming to be the giver:
Let us give as the fair breeze blows...
Without getting attached to a leaf onn the tree.
At the same time, the leaf on the tree receives
Without feeling sorrow for the wind.
Let us give without getting attached,
Yet perform our duty with love and respect.

Dhamma means harmony:
Generosity in all relationships,
Without bondage illusory.
Give genuinely and sincerely.

In Metta, we love...
In peace, in bliss, in freedom, in void.
Therefore, we care not for praise,
Not for recognition.
We see for ourselves;
We know for ourselves.
