Happiness follows him who does good, like a shadow never leaves anyone.
Drop of Dhamma Delight!
He yelled at me, hit me, It won me, robbed me Who hugged her grief hostility, Implacable hatred.
The virtuous deserve dyed garments But he purified of blemishes, put himself firmly to moral behavior, which is peaceful, has control over his emotions and reality itself is aware, the dyed garment is definitely worthy.
Those who do not deserve it dyed garments Someone who bears the painted garment that crude is defilements, has no control over his emotions and reality are not aware, the painted garment is not worthy.
Treasury of Truth (Dhammapada): Chapter Twin Verses
Hatred is overcome by friendship Hate is never conquered by hate in this world; hatred is overcome by friendship. This is a timeless wisdom.
Who bears no animosity in it like: "He insulted and beaten me, he has me beat and robbed." In them that such thoughts do not return, hate disappears.
Suffering haunts him that doeth evil, just as the wheel follows the hoof of the ox that draws the cart.
