Here he’s tormented he’s tormented hereafter
In both worlds the wrong-doer’s tormented
He’s tormented at the thought, ‘I’ve done wrong’
Having gone to a bad destination, he’s tormented all the more

Here he delights he delights hereafter
In both worlds the merit-maker delights
He delights at the thought, ‘I’ve made merit’
Having gone to a good destination, he delights all the more

– Dhammapada [17-18]
