HAPPILY HE/SHE LIVES WHO DRINKS OF THE DHAMMA - Dhammapada Ver. 79)
“He who imbibes the Dhamma abides in happiness with mind pacified; the wise man/woman ever delights in the Dhamma revealed by the Ariyas (one who is far
removed from passions, invariably applied
to the Buddhas and Arahants).”
A king entered the Order and, attaining Arahantship, was constantly saying, “oh happiness!” The monks misconstruing his joy, told the Buddha that he was evidently
thinking of his erstwhile royal pleasures. The Buddha corrected them and said that he was mentally enjoying the bliss of Nibbana.
