"Sense pleasures are impermanent. The search for them involves suffering, and they are enjoyed in constant disquiet; their loss leads to much grief, and their gain can never result in lasting satisfaction"

Abandoning what is unwholesome,
you ought to ponder what is wholesome,
for that will bring you advantages in this world
and help you to win the highest goal.

Better than Power over all the earth,
better than going to heaven, and
better than domination over the worlds
is the joy of the man who
enters the river of life
that leads to Nirvana

Brahma-faring is lived
for the goal of restraint,
for the goal of abandoning,
for the goal of dispassion,
for the goal of making to cease

When desires go, jot comes.
The follower of Buddha finds this truth

Drench, pervade, fill and pervade this body itself with zest and ease that are born of contemplation.

Not to hurt by deeds or words, self-control as taught in the Rules, moderation in food, the solitude of one's room and one's bed, and the practise of the highest consciousness: this is the teachings of the Buddhas who are awake.

(missed yesterdays, so putting in 2 today! Sorry!)
If ill-will or the desire to hurt others should stir your mind,purify it with the opposite. Friendliness and compassion are their antidotes; for they are as ever, as opposed to hatred as light to darkness

I say it is by destroying, stilling stopping, renouncing and abandoning all imaginings, all supposings, all thoughts of 'I am the doer,' 'Mine is the doing', all latent 'I am', and the Truth-finder is freed.

As an axle of a chariot must be lubricated so that it may run properly, so the wise man employs food only to maintain his life.

2 today again!
Victory brings hate, because the defeated man is unhappy.
He who surrenders victory and defeat, this man finds joy.
The fair tree of Void abounds with flowers,
acts of compassion of many kinds,
and fruit for others appearing spontaneously,
for this joy has no actual thought of another.

A man whose words are lies, who transgresses the Great Law, and who scorns the higher world- there is no evil this man may not do.
