The Ballad of Liberation from the Khandas

by Venerable Acariya Mun Bhuridatto
(Available at Access to Insight)

"Becoming aroused by difference of opinions
Finds pleasure in defeating others in debates
By all this, mental energy is diverted into futile unprofitable channels.

If one cannot keep one’s senses under control
Or easily allows one’s mind to become excited or diverted
One then grows slack and careless

And cannot find unification of mind or inner peace to be
obtained in this Satipatthana Vipassana meditation."

-Sayadaw U Kundala
(Disciple of Venerable Mahasi Sayadaw)
