Meditation brings wisdom;
lack of meditation leaves ignorance.
Know well what leads you forward
and what holds you back,
and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
Neither fire nor wind,
birth nor death
can erase our good deeds.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it
no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.
Three things cannot be long hidden:
The sun, the moon and the truth.
You will not be punched for your anger,
you will be punished by your anger.
Friendship is the only cure for hatred,
the only guarantee for peace.
With our thoughts we make the world.
You should respect each other and retain from disputes;
you should not, like water and oil, repel each other,
but should, like milk and water, mingle together.
A jug fills drop by drop.
Hatred does not cease by hatred,
but only by love;
this is the eternal rule.
Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time.
Hatred ceases through love.
This is an unalterable law.
Do not believe what your teacher tells you
merely out of respect for the teacher.
An insincere and evil friend
is more to be feared than a wild beast;
a wild beast may wound your body,
but an evil friend
will wound your mind.
Your purpose in life
is to find your
purpose and give
your whole heart
and soul to it.
If a man possesses a repentant spirit his sins will disappear,
but if he has an unrepentant spirit his sins will continue
and condemn him for their sake forever.
Set your hurt on doing good.
Do it over and over again,
and you will be filled with joy.
The solution to all the problems of daily life is to cherish others.
