Fading, But How Fast?

“Friends, passion carries little blame and is slow to fade. Aversion carries great blame and is quick to fade. Delusion carries great blame and is slow to fade.” – AN 3.68

“Rāgo kho, āvuso, appasāvajjo dandhavirāgī, doso mahāsāvajjo khippavirāgī, moho mahāsāvajjo dandhavirāgī’ti.

“ငါ့သျှင်တို့ ရာဂသည် အပြစ်နည်း၏၊ ဖြည်းဖြည်း ကင်းပျောက်၏၊ ဒေါသသည် အပြစ်ကြီး၏၊ မြန်မြန် ကင်းပျောက်၏၊ မောဟသည် အပြစ်ကြီး၏၊ ဖြည်းဖြည်း ကင်းပျောက်၏။”

“Tham, thưa các Hiền giả, là tội nhỏ, nhưng ly tham là chậm chạp. Sân là tội lớn, nhưng ly sân là mau chóng. Si là tội lớn, và ly si là chậm chạp.”

『道友們!貪罪過少、褪去徐緩;瞋罪過大、褪去急速;癡罪過大、褪去徐緩。』
