Daily Words of the Buddha for May 02, 2015

tien-silversmithingAnupubbena medhāvī, thokaṃ thokaṃ, khaṇe khaṇe,
Kammāro rajatasseva,
niddhame malamattano.

One by one, little by little, moment by moment,
a wise one should remove one’s own impurities,
as a smith removes dross from silver.

Dhammapada 18.239

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