Pāli Word a Day for November 01, 2019 — abaddha — unfettered, free, unbound

Sukhakāmāni bhūtāni,
yo daṇḍena na hiṃsati
attano sukhamesāno,
pecca so labhate sukhaṃ.

One who, while oneself seeking happiness,
does not oppress with violence other beings
who also desire happiness,
will find happiness hereafter.
