Streams

The streams, lakes, and rivers that flow down to the ocean, when they reach the ocean, all have the same blue color, the same salty taste.

The same with human beings: It doesn’t matter where they’re from — when they reach the stream of the Dharma, it’s all the same Dharma.

– Ajahn Chah, Theravada, Thai Forest Tradition.
