We are what we think, All that arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act with impure mind and trouble will follow you as the ox that draws the cart.

We are what we think. All that we arise with our thoughts, with our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act with pure mind and happiness will follow you as your shadow, unshakable.

“Look how he abused me and beat me!” How he threw me and robbed me” Live with such thoughts and you will live in hate.

Look how he abused me and beat me!” How he threw me and robbed me” Abandon such thoughts and live in LOVE.

In this world
Hate never dispelled hate.
Only LOVE dispels hate.
This is the Law,
Ancient and inexhaustible

You too shall pass away knowing this, how can you quarrel.
