The Dhammapada class # 9

Chuc Thanh Facilitated

Flowers, Verses 44 to 47

The following points were brought out in the discussion:

- The reference to “foam” is to sea foam.  It is light and fleeting.  It can disappear as soon as you touch it.  Like a mirage.  We are here for a very short time.

- Mara is desire, hatred, passion, negative.  The flowers of Mara are the fruit of negative things.  Flowers turn into fruit as in cause and effect.
