A Flowing River

Dharma Discussion on Saturday 9 January 2016 (1)

Thay pointed out that a river, flowing incessantly, is never the same each moment; we do not step into the same river twice. We, essentially a mere composition of the five aggregates (body, feeling, perception, mental formation and consciousness) are also never the same each moment. Understanding this phenomena, we should not waste time chasing after the false and the impermanent. We should cherish each moment to further our practice especially when we are well and healthy.
