Daily word of the Buddha

Greed is to be slightly blamed but it is slow to change. Hatred is to be greatly blamed but it is quick to change. Delusion is to be greatly blamed and it is slow to change.

Wisdom is purified by virtue, and virtue is purified by wisdom. Where one is, so is the other. The virtuous person has wisdom, and the wise person has virtue. The combination of virtue and wisdom is called the highest thing in the world.

The past should not be followed after,And the future not desired.What is past is dead and gone,And the future is yet to come.
But whoever gains insight into thingsPresently arisen in the here and now,Knowing them, unmoved, unshaken -Let him cultivate that insight.
