Daily Words of the Buddha ~ August 04, 2014

changing mind

Abhittharetha kalyāṇe;

pāpā cittaṃ nivāraye.

Dandhañhi karoto puññaṃ,

pāpasmiṃ ramatī mano.

 

Hasten to do good;
restrain your mind from evil.
One who is slow in doing good,
one’s mind delights in evil.

Dhammapada 9.116

The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom,
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
