Daily Words of the Buddha ~ October 05, 2014

2 lilypadsAtītaṃ nānvāgameyya,
nappaṭikaṅkhe anāgataṃ;
yadatītaṃ pahīnaṃ taṃ,
appattañca anāgataṃ

The past should not be followed after,
and the future not desired;
what is past is dead and gone,
and the future is yet to come.

Majjhima Nikāya 3.272

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