As a bee, without harming the blossom,
its color, its fragrance
takes its nectar & flies away
so should the sage go through a village.

WEEKLY WISDOM 21/08/2017

Whoever, with a rod, harasses an innocent man, unarmed, quickly falls into any of ten things: harsh pains, devastation, a broken body, grave illness, mental derangement, trouble with the government, violent slander, relatives lost, property dissolved, houses burned down. At the break-up of the body this one with no disconcernment, reappears in hell.

WEEKLY WISDOM 14/08/2017

Patient endurance: the foremost austerity.
Unbinding: the foremost,
so say the Awakened.
He who injures another is no contemplative.
He who mistreats another, no monk.

WEEKLY WISDOM 07/08/2017

Evil is done by oneself by oneself is one defiled. Evil is left undone by oneself by oneself is one cleansed. Purity & impurity are one’s own doing. No one purifies another. No one purifies one.
