“Three things are coming, like a wall of flame:death, disease, and old age.No power can stand before them,and no speed’s enough to flee.

Walking or standing,sitting or lying down:your final night draws near;you have no time to be careless.” https://suttacentral.net/thag6.13/en/sujato

at Empty Cloud ‘s Vesak yesterday I got to listen to a talk from Ajahn Passano, and one story of Ajahn Chah that the Ajahn gave stood out for me, both as a rare Chah story I’ve not heard, and also for how “Chah” it is(yes I’m a Ajahn Chah fanboy, so what ?:P).
