A Drum

Dharma Discussion on Saturday 12 December 2015 (2)


Thay pointed out that we are just like a drum. Because:

  1. Like a drum, our body is hollow – there is nothing substantial.
  2. The sound of a  drum when played unskillfully and at the wrong time is noisy and unpleasant; the sound of a drum when played skillfully and at the right time is melodious. Likewise our mouth can be a noisy drum or melodious drum – producing unwholesome speech or unwholesome speech.

Let us all strive to be a prajna (wisdom) drum.
