And you shall keep stakes yourself; there they are. But, stay, sir, now I consider it, I shall add a year to your wife's age. If I alter this, your wife will have but a month to live by the law.
Let a man leave anger, let him forsake pride, let him overcome all bondage!
No sufferings befall the man who is not attached to name and form, and who calls nothing his own. He who holds back rising anger like a rolling chariot, him I call a real driver; other people are but holding the reins. Let a man overcome anger by love, let him overcome evil by good; let him overcome the greedy by liberality, the liar by truth!
Speak the truth, do not yield to anger; give, if thou art asked for little; by these three steps thou wilt go near the gods. The sages who injure nobody, and who always control their body, they will go to the unchangeable place Nirvanawhere, if they have gone, they will suffer no more.
Those who are ever watchful, who study day and night, and who strive after Nirvana, their passions will come to an end.
|What is Vipassana?||Bear in mind that, although these are both very pretty beaches, the water and sand are not quite the same quality as other popular beach destinations in Vietnam, such as Mui Ne, Nha Trang, and Phu Quoc.|
This is an old saying, O Atula, this is not only of to-day: There never was, there never will be, nor is there now, a man who is always blamed, or a man who is always praised. But he whom those who discriminate praise continually day after day, as without blemish, wise, rich in knowledge and virtue, who would dare to blame him, like a coin made of gold from the Gambu river?
Even the gods praise him, he is praised even by Brahman. Beware of bodily anger, and control thy body! Leave the sins of the body, and with thy body practise virtue!
Beware of the anger of the tongue, and control thy tongue! Leave the sins of the tongue, and practise virtue with thy tongue!
Beware of the anger of the mind, and control thy mind! Leave the sins of the mind, and practise virtue with thy mind! The wise who control their body, who control their tongue, the wise who control their mind, are indeed well controlled.
Thou art now like a sear leaf, the messengers of death Yama have come near to thee; thou standest at the door of thy departure, and thou hast no provision for thy journey. Make thyself an island, work hard, be wise!
When thy impurities are blown away, and thou art free from guilt, thou wilt enter into the heavenly world of the elect Ariya. Thy life has come to an end, thou art come near to death Yamathere is no resting-place for thee on the road, and thou hast no provision for thy journey.
When thy impurities are blown away, and thou art free from guilt, thou wilt not enter again into birth and decay.
Let a wise man blow off the impurities of his self, as a smith blows off the impurities of silver one by one, little by little, and from time to time. As the impurity which springs from the iron, when it springs from it, destroys it; thus do a transgressor's own works lead him to the evil path.
The taint of prayers is non-repetition; the taint of houses, non- repair; the taint of the body is sloth; the taint of a watchman, thoughtlessness. Bad conduct is the taint of woman, greediness the taint of a benefactor; tainted are all evil ways in this world and in the next.
But there is a taint worse than all taints,--ignorance is the greatest taint. Life is easy to live for a man who is without shame, a crow hero, a mischief-maker, an insulting, bold, and wretched fellow.
But life is hard to live for a modest man, who always looks for what is pure, who is disinterested, quiet, spotless, and intelligent. He who destroys life, who speaks untruth, who in this world takes what is not given him, who goes to another man's wife; And the man who gives himself to drinking intoxicating liquors, he, even in this world, digs up his own root.
O man, know this, that the unrestrained are in a bad state; take care that greediness and vice do not bring thee to grief for a long time! The world gives according to their faith or according to their pleasure: He in whom that feeling is destroyed, and taken out with the very root, finds rest by day and by night.
There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed. The fault of others is easily perceived, but that of oneself is difficult to perceive; a man winnows his neighbour's faults like chaff, but his own fault he hides, as a cheat hides the bad die from the gambler.
If a man looks after the faults of others, and is always inclined to be offended, his own passions will grow, and he is far from the destruction of passions.
There is no path through the air, a man is not a Samana by outward acts. The world delights in vanity, the Tathagatas the Buddhas are free from vanity.
No creatures are eternal; but the awakened Buddha are never shaken. A man is not just if he carries a matter by violence; no, he who distinguishes both right and wrong, who is learned and leads others, not by violence, but by law and equity, and who is guarded by the law and intelligent, he is called just.
A man is not learned because he talks much; he who is patient, free from hatred and fear, he is called learned.A line-by-line dramatic verse analysis of Hamlet's speech in Act III, scene 1.
