"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
