Daily Words of the Buddha ~ September 25, 2014

2mice“Yathā ahaṃ tathā ete;
yathā ete tathā ahaṃ.”
Attānaṃ upamaṃ katvā,
na haneyya na ghātaye.

“As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I.”
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Sutta Nipāta 3.710
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma,
compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
