The Destruction of Screens

DIPS

The Destruction of  Screens:

A man who humbly enters on the path
Holds a begging bowl to help all beings
How can he crave for those sense data
Through which he falls into five passions?
He has rejected five desires
On which he now has turned his back.
Why should he then revive them
Like one who eats his vomit!
Hardship is caused by seeking objects of
Desire which are a source of dread when won;
When lost, they create grief and resentment, ‘
~ None of them ever can bring happiness~;
This is the trouble which desires confer.
The problem is to cast them all away
So that real bliss in dhyana-samadhi can be
Enjoyed whilst deception disappears for evermore…
