'Whatever is subject to arising is all subject to cessation.'
‘Train in acts of merit
that yield the foremost profit of bliss —
a life in tune
and a mind of goodwill.’
‘Someone who, with skillful deeds,
shuts the door on bad things they’ve done,
lights up the world
like the moon freed from a cloud.’
‘When a house is aflame,
the vessel salvaged
is the one that will be of use,
not the one left there to burn.
So when the world is on fire
with aging & death,
you should salvage (your wealth) by giving:
What’s given is well salvaged.’
‘Mind precedes all mental states.
Mind is their chief;
they are all mind-wrought.
If with a pure mind a person speaks or acts,
happiness follows him
like his never-departing shadow.’
