Monks in the Morning, Friday, June 28, 2019 Show Notes

Here is the Dhammapada verse we learned:

Duppabbajjaṃ durabhiramaṃ,
Durāvāsā gharā dukhā;
Duk­kho­sa­mānasaṃ­vāso,
Duk­khā­nu­patitad­dhagū;
Tasmā na caddhagū siyā,
Na cadukkhānupatitosiyā.

302. Becoming a monk is difficult—it is hard to enjoy the monk life. Household life is also difficult—it is painful. Living with people who have different opinions is suffering. Wandering in the journey of rebirths is indeed suffering. Therefore, do not be a wanderer in saṁsāra; do not be a pursuer of suffering.
