Daily Words of the Buddha ~ November 25, 2014

blooming roses 3
Candanaṃ, tagaraṃ, vāpi uppalaṃ, atha vassikī —
etesaṃ gandhajātānaṃ —
sīlagandho anuttaro.

Of all the fragrances —
sandal, tagara, blue lotus and jasmine —
the fragrance of virtue is the sweetest.

Dhammapada 4.55

The Dhammapada: The Buddha’s Path of Wisdom,
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
