“HARMELESSNESS” & “DHAMMAPADA”

All beings tremble before violence.
All fear death.
All love life
See yourself in others.
Then whom can you hurt?
What harm can you do?
He who seeks happiness
By hurting those who seek happiness
Will never find happiness
For your Brother is like you
He want to be happy
Never harm him
And when you leave this life
You too will find happiness.

We are what we think
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will follow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.
We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unshakable.
How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?
Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded
But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.
