Daily Words of the Buddha for September 12, 2017

Pāli Word a Day for September 12, 2017 — vītasoka – vīta + soka = free from + grief — free from sorrow, grief, mourning

Hitānukampī sambuddho
yadaññamanusāsati,
anurodhavirodhehi
vippamutto tathāgato.

When the Buddha teaches others
he does so out of compassion,
because the Tathagata is wholly freed
from both favour and aversion.
