Daily Words of the Buddha ~ October 08, 2014

underwater statuePabbatassa suvaṇṇassa,
jātarūpassa kevalo
dvittāva nālamekassa:
iti vidvā samañcare.

Were there a mountain all made of gold,
doubled that would not be enough
to satisfy a single person:
know this and live accordingly.

Saṃyutta Nikāya 1.156

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