Ven Rajagiriye Ariyagnana Thero’ s Life story
Extract from the book “Giving up – 1 ” translated by Sunil Wettimuny
If you feel that tiredness or the weight, while you are practicing the Buddhist principles then it is an indication of incorrect practice.
You need more devotion to Lord Buddha and thereby follow the path of “Virtue (Sila), Concentration (Samadhi) and Wisdom (Pafifla)” and to move forward with trust and faith. Here is the point where you must be clever to incline Materiality into Principles and practices. However we cling to the material prosperity and get imprisoned. Thereby more and more prosperity flows in. Finally this fortune of requisites grabs us, gets hold of us! This situation leads you to reside, where you’ve thought the happiness lies, makes it a resting place, rather than inspiring you to continue your journey to Nibbana through the path of “Sila, Samadhi and Panna”.
Always be clever to see the arising mind as impermanent. Be clever to see the mind does not belong to you. Be clever to see the mind as a stranger to you. See the mind as your friend who gives the suffering. When you see the mind in this way, the Four Stations of Mindfulness (සතර සතිපට්ඨානය) grows within you. What you comprehend, understand is the “Pancha Upadanaskandha”; or Five Clinging Aggregates; Patichchasamuppadaya”(පටිච්චසමුප්පාදය); or Dependent Origination; “Saptha Bojjanga Dharma”; or Seven Factors of Enlightenment. You do not need to go searching for them; no need to learn them.
The path for you to receive and also to relinquish things is shown through the devoted trust in the Lord Buddha.
