Hatred never ceases through hatred in this world; through love alone they cease. This is an eternal law.
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.
When you are free from delusion, you will go beyond birth and death.
If one speaks or acts with pure mind, because of that happiness follows one, even as one’s shadow that never leaves.
Happy is the unity of the Sangha. Happy is the discipline of the united ones.
By degrees, little by little, from time to time, a wise person should remove his own impurities as a smith removes the dross from silver.
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.
There is no evil that cannot be done by the liar, who has transgressed the one law of truthfulness and who is indifferent to the world beyond.
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.
A disciple in training will comprehend this earth, the realm of death and the realm of the gods. A disciple in training will investigate the well-taught Path of Virtue, even as an expert garland-maker picks flowers.
