Joy and Beauty


I’d like to add this from With Mahānāma; it seems to fit with our attempts to find balance in ourselves and in our community here on D&D:

When a noble disciple recollects the teaching their mind is not full of greed, hate, and delusion. … This is called a noble disciple who lives in balance among people who are unbalanced, and lives untroubled among people who are troubled.

It goes on to add recollection of the Sangha, of one’s own of ethical qualities, of one’s generosity and of the deities, and overall seems to point towards remembering that we work on our own sila in the context of community.
