Weingast’s title is “Bhadda Kapilani ~ Red Hair”
The Essay From Lioness Roars to Purrs – A Review of The First Free Women by Matty Weingast begins with an analysis of these verses.
63. Kassapa, the son, the heir of the Buddha, well concentrated, who knows his former habitation and sees heaven and hell,
64. and has attained the destruction of rebirths, is a sage perfected in supernormal knowledge. Because of these three knowledges he is a brahman with triple knowledge.
65. In just the same way Bhaddā Kāpilānī, with triple knowledge, having left death behind, bears her last body, having conquered Māra and his mount.
66. Having seen the peril in the world, we both went forth; with āsavas annihilated, tamed, we have become cool, quenched.
After our wedding,
my husband and I put on robes together
and soon went our separate ways.
Not exactly what most would call a honeymoon.
Is that what love looks like?
when you see what love is
and what it isn’t.
Marriage is hard.
The good times come and go.
True love doesn’t throw a curtain
over the whole world
and imprison whoever it cares about the most
on an empty stage.
When the mind is free,
it’s free of expecting
more than is reasonable
from any one person.
