A shaven head Doesn’t mean a contemplative. The liar observing no duties, Filled with greed & desire: What kind of contemplative’s he? But whoever tunes out The dissonance Of his evil qualities –large or small– in every way by bringing evil to consonance; he’s called a contemplative. – Dhammapada [19]
