If one speaks or acts with pure mind, because of that happiness follows one, even as one’s shadow that never leaves.
Win over the ill-natured man by goodness…Make haste in doing good; check your mind from evil; for the mind of him who is slow in doing meritorious actions delights in evil.
When you are free from delusion, you will go beyond birth and death.
An ignorant man committing evil deeds does not realise the consequences. The imprudent man is consumed by his own deeds, like one burnt by fire.
Come behold this world, which is like unto an ornamented royal chariot, wherein fools flounder, but for the wise there is no attachment.
Make haste in doing good; check your mind from evil; for the mind of him who is slow in doing meritorious actions delights in evil.
For him who has completed the journey, for him who is sorrowless, for him who from everything is wholly free, for him who has destroyed all ties, the fever of passion exists not… He is like a pool, unsullied by mud; to such a balanced one, life’s wanderings do not arise. Calm is his mind, calm is his speech, calm is his action, who, rightly knowing, is wholly freed, perfectly peaceful and equipoised.
Let us live happily, we who have no impediments. We shall subsist on joy even as the radiant gods.
Happy is the unity of the Sangha. Happy is the discipline of the united ones.
Hatred never ceases through hatred in this world; through love alone they cease. This is an eternal law.
