A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on life, peace, sleep, wishes, serpent, afflictions, viper, hook, precepts, remove, and rest

The poisonous serpent of afflictions is sleeping in your mind; just as if a black viper were asleep in your room.

You must use the hook of precepts to quickly remove it.

When the sleeping snake is gone, then you can rest at ease.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on heaven, money, pleasure, senses, suffering, craving, elimination, desire, and buddhas

There is no satisfying the senses, not even with a shower of money. "The senses are of slight pleasure and really suffering." When a wise man has realised this, he takes no pleasure, as a disciple of the Buddhas, even in the pleasures of heaven. Instead he takes pleasure in the elimination of craving.
