MN 011 Cūḷasīhanāda: The Shorter Discourse on the Lion’s Roar


Among the hordes of animals that roam the wild, whether the jungle, the mountains or the plain, the lion is universally recognised to be their chief. The living embodiment of self-possessed power, he is the most regal in manner and deportment, the mightiest, the foremost with respect to speed, courage and dominion. The expression of the lion’s supremacy is its roar—a roar which reduces to silence the cries, howls, bellows, shrieks, barks and growls of lesser creatures. When the lion steps forth from his den and sounds his roar, all the other animals stop and listen. On such an occasion none dares even to sound its own cry, let alone to come into the open and challenge the fearless, unsurpassable roar of the golden-maned king of beasts...  (from B.Bodhi's intro in wheel booklet 390-391)
