Mind precedes all mental states.
Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought.
If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts
Suffering follows him
Like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox.

Dhammapada 1
"Mind precedes all mental states.
Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought.
If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts
happiness follows him
like his never-departing shadow."
Dhammapada 2

Monastery Sirisampanno - Buddhist Nunnery

 

The Buddhist monastery of the Theravada tradition is a place of residence for nuns and aspirants and at the same time offers interested lay people the opportunity for spiritual growth within the framework of a stay at the monastery, a day visit or participation in the puja.
This place is still in the making and is being built by the nuns and practicing lay people. Guests who wish to participate in monastic life and are willing to adapt to the local way of life are welcome at the discretion of the community. Spiritual accompaniment is possible during the stay.
Sirisampanno means "Perfect Happiness" in Pali, the language of early Buddhism.
"Impermanence, that is one thing that is great and certain. Greatness, that is impermanence. A great life is a life full of generosity (dana), morality (sila), loving-kindness (metta) and gratitude (katanyu). A life of goodness may not be great, but a life that is great must be connected solely with qualities of goodness."
