Daily Words of the Buddha ~ October 15, 2014

gilt buddhaDānañca, peyyavajjañca,
atthacariyā ca yā idha,
samānattatā ca dhammesu,
tattha tattha yathārahaṃ;
ete kho saṅgahā loke
rathassāṇīva yāyato.

Generosity, kind words,
doing a good turn for others,
and treating all people alike:
these bonds of sympathy are to the world
what the linchpin is to the chariot wheel.

Jātaka 20

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