Or how about this for the body?

“A tumor where nine holes abide

Wrapped in a coat of clammy hide

And trickling filth on every side,

Polluting the air with stenches far and wide.”

— M. R., quoting “Questions of Milinda” 74

Even knowing these things to be true, my wisdom trails my intellectual understanding. I can only hope that by continuously reminding myself of these truths the seeds of pañña will take root.
