Daily Words of the Buddha ~ November 06, 2014

azalea-bonsai
Dosaggiṃ pana mettāya,
nibbāpenti naruttamā.
Mohaggiṃ pana paññāya
yāyaṃ nibbedhagāminī.

By love they will quench the fire of hate,
by wisdom the fire of delusion.
Those supreme ones extinguish delusion
with wisdom that breaks through to truth.

Itivuttaka 3.93

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