Hurt and Ill-will

“My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground on which I stand.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

The law of karma 

Wise ones never do sin for himself or for others..
They never look for the success by unfair..

1. Cause no hurt; cherish no ill-will.

2. This is the simple way of life.

3. Is there in all the world a man so blameless that he gives no occasion for reproach, as a spirited horse gives no occasion for the stroke of the lash?

4. By confidence, by virtue, by energy, by meditation, by investigation into the Truth, by perfection in knowledge and conduct , by recollectedness, leave ye this great suffering behind.

5. “The most excellent of ascetic practices is the practice of forbearance, of long suffering; most excellent of all is Nibbana”;
so says the Buddha. He is no ascetic who does hurt to others; he is no disciple who works another’s woe.

6. To speak no ill, to do no harm, to practice restraint in conformity with the discipline, this is the counsel of Buddha.

7. All beings fear pain, all beings fear death, therefore, neither kill nor cause slaughter.

8. He who seeking his own happiness does not punish or kill beings who also long for happiness, will find happiness.

9. If, like a shattered, metal plate(gong), thou utter nothing, then thou has reached Nibbana; anger is not known to thee.

10. He who inflicts pain on innocent and harmless person will soon come to grief.

11. He who, dressed in fine apparel of tranquility, is quiet, subdued, restrained, chaste and has ceased to find fault with all other beings, he indeed is an ascetic(Samana). a friar (Bhikku).

12. Is there in this world any man so restrained by shame that he does not provoke reproof, as a noble horse the whip?

13. If a man offend a harmless, pure, and innocent person, the evil falls back upon that fool, like light dust thrown up against the wind.
