Purity of Heart

HAPPY NEW YEAR! May the year of Tiger brings you health and "purity of heart". I was reading "Purity of Heart, Essays on the Buddhist Path" by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff) and was touched. Want to share this with you'all in the coming New Year.

The following are the paragraphs from the short article. Enjoy and best with your practices.
-- “You know,” he said, “the whole aim of our practice is purity of heart. Everything else is just games.”,
-- his "... definition of purity of heart was simple ... a happiness that will never harm anyone",
-- " ... Ajaan Fuang was offering to teach me how to develop it. That’s one of the reasons why I stayed with him until he died."
