Buddhist Thought of the Day

They, the enlightened, intent on jhana*,
delighting in stilling
& renunciation,
self-awakened & mindful:
even the devas
view them with envy.
Dhammapada, 14, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

*Jhana is a meditative state of profound stillness and concentration in which the mind becomes fully immersed and absorbed in the chosen object of attention. It is the cornerstone in the development of Right Concentration.
