More Dhamma for Reflection

"We know at the intellectual level what is
right; but we still keep on repeating the
same mistakes because our mind is not
under our control, because it is not pure."

--S.N. Goenka, The Vipassana Newsletter, May 2002

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

"Easy it is to do what is wrong and what
is harmful to oneself, difficult indeed
to do that which is good and beneficial."

--Dhammapada 163 (12:7)

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

"Just as rust eats away at the very iron
from which it has risen, so a transgressors'
own deeds lead him to states of suffering."

--Dhammapada 240 (18:6)

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

"Witlessly, fools conduct themselves as
if their own enemies, performing harmful
actions of which the fruit is bitter."

--Dhammapada 66 (5:7)

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

"Be well-restrained in your thoughts,
words, and deeds. Through purifying
these three ways of action, one wins
the path realized by the Sages."

--Dhammapada 281 (20:9)

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

"A disciplined mind leads to happiness."

--Dhammapada 35 (3:3)

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

"One who was heedless in the past, and
later is heedful, such a one illumines the
world like the moon freed from clouds."

--Dhammapada 172 (13:6)
