Daily Dhamma: Verses for Reflection

 

"All that we experience is the result of our thoughts, is
founded on our thoughts, is made up of our thoughts..."

--Dhammapada 1:1

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Whatever harm an enemy may do to one...an undisciplined mind
can do far greater harm. Whatever good one's mother, father, or
other relatives may do for one, a well-disciplined mind can do far
greater good."

--Dhammapada 42-43 (3:10-11)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Buddha: "What is the purpose of a mirror, Rahula?"

Rahula: "The purpose of a mirror is reflection, Venerable One."

The Buddha: "So it is with the mind, Rahula.  Actions of body,
speech, and mind should be done after repeated reflection."

--Ambalatthika Rahulovada Sutta (MN 61)
