The Path of Pleasure

This is a calf, not a dog, Kathmandu
Katha Upanishad 1:2:1

There is a path of joy and there is the path of pleasure. Pondering on them, the wise (one) chooses the path of joy; the fool takes the path of pleasure.


  1. The trick is knowing and appreciating the difference. I think the cow is enjoying the sun there in the street. Or is it pleasure to know she can stay there without being annoyed?

  2. The cow does look happy.

    I am a fool much of the time, but a joyful one.

  3. it's about degrees of selflessness and awareness. steven
