Title: Matangaputta

Summary: url=index.html#thag.03.05.than It's too hot, it's too cold – what's your excuse.

Thag 3.5


translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu


It's too cold, too hot, too late in the evening — people who say this, shirking their work: the moment passes them by. Whoever regards cold & heat as no more than grass, doing his manly duties, won't fall away from ease. With my chest I push through wild grasses — spear-grass, ribbon-grass, rushes — cultivating a seclusion heart.
