Buddha Vacana (August 6, 2555)

Eleven advantages are to be looked for in the freedom of mind through the practice of love,
    by making love grow,
    by making much of it,
    by making love a vehicle and basis,
    by persisting in it,
    by becoming familiar with it, and
    by establishing it well.

What eleven?  
    One sleeps happily,
    one wakes happily,
    one has no bad dreams,
    one is dear to both humans and non-humans*,
    one is guarded by the gods,
    fire, poison and swords do not affect one,
    the mind concentrates quickly,
    the complexion becomes radiant,
    one dies without bewilderment,
  and if one develops no further,
    one will reach at least to the Brahma world.

-- A.V,342

Note. The importance and advantages of good love are known for many thousands years. In this Teaching, it is love (not dukkha) that is highlighted.

* this is counted as two -- to make eleven advantages.

ขอบคุณค่ะท่าน sr ลึกซึ้ง

Please do not thank 'me' but do thank Buddhists the world over for keeping the Teaching alive.

We know that a religion (any belief) is alive only when people have faith in it and practice it.
