Wisdom of the Past

Distinguish between those who understand and those
who agree.

He who understands the Teaching will not tarry in applying it to
life;

He who agrees will nod and extol the Teaching as remarkable wisdom,


but will not apply this wisdom to his life.

There are many who have agreed, but they are like a withered forest,


fruitless and without shade. Only decay awaits them.

Those who understand are few, but like a sponge they absorb the
precious knowledge and are ready to cleanse the horrors of the world
with the precious liquid.


Buddha
