Pāli Word a Day for December 09, 2018 — paṇītaṃ — excellent, precious

Jayaṃ veraṃ pasavati.
Dukkhaṃ seti parājito.
Upasanto sukhaṃ seti,
hitvā jayaparājayaṃ.

Winning gives birth to hostility.
Losing, one lies down in pain.
The calmed lie down with ease,
having set winning & losing aside.

Dhammapada 15.201
Translated from Pāli by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
