On the smiling Ananda

And Buddha says to Ananda: “If you recognise only one of the three jewels in your mind, it will be easy for you to follow the Eightfold Path and realise the Four Noble Truths. Thus, happiness, loving-kindness and compassion will find their place in a heart full of questions, doubts and fear.” “Remember when Mahākāśyapa smiled? This is the way I teach the Dharma.”
