To all of you gathered here I say: Good fortune. Dig up craving –as when seeking medicinal roots, wild grass– by the root. Don’t let Mara cut you down –as a raging river, a reed– over & over again. – Dhammapada [24]

Don’t ever–regardless– be conjoined with what’s dear or undear. It’s painful not to see what’s dear or to see what’s not. So don’t make anything dear, for it’s dreadful to be far from what’s dear. No bonds are found for those for whom there’s neither dear nor undear. – Dhammapada [16]

Dwelling in kindness, a monk with faith in the Awakened One’s teaching, would attain the good state, the peaceful state: stilling-of-fabrications ease. Monk, bail out this boat. It will take you lightly when bailed. Having cut through passion, aversion, you go from there to Unbinding. – Dhammapada [25]

You yourself should reprove yourself, should examine yourself. As a self-guarded monk with guarded self, mindful, you dwell at ease. Your own self is your own mainstay. Your own self is your own guide. Therefore you should watch over yourself– as a trader, a fine steed. – Dhammapada [25]
