Peacefulness ~ Ajahn Chah

Our practice is to begin destroying greed, hatred and delusion – defilements which for the most part can be found within each and every one of us. These are what hold us in the round of becoming and birth and prevent us from achieving peace of mind. Greed, hatred and delusion prevent the samana – peacefulness – from arising within us. As long as this peace does not arise, we are still not samana; in other words, our hearts have not experienced the peace that is free from the influence of greed, hatred and delusion. This is why we practise – with the intention of expunging greed, hatred and delusion from our hearts. It is only when these defilements have been removed that we can reach purity, that which is truly venerable.

Damai ~ Ajahn Chah

Praktek kita dimulai dari menghancurkan keserakahan, kebencian dan delusi – kekotoran batin yang sebagian besar dapat ditemukan di dalam diri kita masing-masing. Inilah yang membuat kita berada dalam kelahiran dan kelahiran dan mencegah kita untuk mencapai kedamaian batin. Keserakahan, kebencian dan delusi mencegah samana – kedamaian – muncul dari dalam diri kita. Selama kedamaian ini tidak muncul, kita masih bukan samana; Dengan kata lain, hati kita belum mengalami kedamaian yang terbebas dari pengaruh keserakahan, kebencian dan delusi. Inilah sebabnya mengapa kita berlatih – dengan maksud menghilangkan keserakahan, kebencian dan delusi dari hati kita. Hanya di saat kekotoran batin ini telah dilenyapkan, kita baru bisa mencapai kemurnian, itulah yang benar-benar patut dihormati.
