Dhammapada /Yamakvaggo 13-14


Lord Buddha

यथा अगारं दुच्छन्‍नं, वुट्ठी समतिविज्झति। एवं अभावितं चित्तं, रागो समतिविज्झति॥13 Just as rain penetrates a badly-roofed house, so also, passion (raga) penetrates a mind not cultivated in Tranquillity and Insight Development (Samatha and Vipassana).




यथा अगारं सुछन्‍नं, वुट्ठी न समतिविज्झति। एवं सुभावितं चित्तं, रागो न समतिविज्झति॥


Just as rain cannot penetrate a well-roofed house, so also, passion (raga) cannot penetrate a mind well-cultivated in Tranquillity and Insight Development (Samatha and Vipassana).
