"To improve oneself is to improve one's mind. The most
important spot on earth is the mind itself, and it needs to be well-kept.
Understanding the mind is seeing dhamma (the teachings of the Buddha).
Seeing one's mind is knowing dhamma (the underlying order in nature
and life). Knowing the mind recognizes the truth (liberate the mind
from suffering). Once you reach a deep understanding of your own
mind, you reach nirvana (a state of perfect peace). The mind is
the treasure of all treasures so one must not overlook and should
take interest in knowing the mind. If not, one is missing the point
of being born."
Ajahn Mun Bhuridatto
