A quote from one of my favorite teachers. I did not have the privilege of meeting Ajahn Chah while he was alive but his words are very much alive and relevant. His teachings were always simple and straightforward.
“Do not become an Arahant.
Do not become a Bodisatva.
Do not become anything at all.
If you become anything at all you will suffer.”
“If you haven’t wept deeply, you haven’t begun to meditate.”
