Buddhist View on Love and Attachment

Source: Buddhist View on Love and Attachment

Excerpt:

In the words of the Blessed One “There is the case where evil, unskillful thoughts — imbued with desire, aversion, or delusion — arise in a monk while he is referring to and attending to a particular theme. He should attend to another theme.When he is attending to this other theme, connected with what is skillful, then those evil, unskillful thoughts are abandoned and subside. With their abandoning, he steadies his mind right within, settles it, unifies it, and concentrates it. Just as a skilled carpenter or his apprentice would use a small peg to knock out, drive out, and pull out a large one; in the same way.”
