A Gift of Dharma for 6.16.11

Today’s quote is from our friend and four-time past interviewee Bhikkhu Bodhi, whom I previously wrote a short biography for in this post. This is it:

The key to development along the Buddhist path is repetitive routine guided by inspirational vision. It is the insight into final freedom — the peace and purity of a liberated mind — that uplifts us and impels us to overcome our limits. But it is by repetition — the methodical cultivation of wholesome practices — that we cover the distance separating us from the goal and draw ever closer to deliverance.
