Are We Enlightened Yet?

Finding time to seek spiritual satisfaction can be difficult when secular obligations (friends, rent, etc.) are all so time consuming. To help readers find their paths, Buddhanet has designed a feature called The Daily Enlightenment, a daily devotional message with small hints, practices, and poems for busy Buddhists. By portioning out the long, hard work of enlightenment into easily digestible morsels, the website makes the path to spiritual satisfaction a little more manageable.

Yesterday’s message comes from the Samyutta Nikaya:
The worse of the two
is he who, when abused, retaliates.
One who does not retaliate
wins a battle hard to win.

very nice, indeed. But Dailyzen.com is doing exactly this for six years and I am hooked to their daily "poetry" which has been a source of deep comfort and insight, too, in these rough times... Cheers Thomas

To Brendan: Why am I unable to connect with the daily Buddhist enlightenment? Every time I try to enter my e-mail address I get sent back to the home page. What gives? Donald
