Daily Words of the Buddha for March 25, 2020

Pāli Word a Day for March 25, 2020 — kasī — ploughing, cultivation of the soil

Attā hi attano nātho;
ko hi nātho paro siyā?
Attanā hi sudantena,
nāthaṃ labhati dullabhaṃ.

One truly is the protector of oneself;
who else could the protector be?
With oneself fully controlled,
one gains a mastery that is hard to gain.
