The Quail’s Tale – A Path to Harmlessness

Praising Truth for its own sake, we lean in the direction of Truth. We make our intention not to harm by body, speech, or thought. Harmlessness leads to selflessness. Selflessness leads to the Deathless. To boundless compassion. This will save us from the flames of greed, violence, and delusion raging around us. Like the baby quail. What saved it from the forest fire was the purity of its own truth developed over lifetimes. An online Toronto Theravada Buddhist Community (TBC) talk during COVID-19, May, 2020.
