Wesak Commemorates the Birth, Enlightenment


and Parinibbana of The Buddha 2
3
Hate is never
conquered by hate in
this world; hatred is
overcome by love.
This is the
Eternal Law.
( Dhammapada 5)

4
Avoid both folly
and greed.
Meditating
earnestly the
watchful man
acquires great
happiness.
(Dhammapada 27)

5
If a mans mind is
concentrated and
calm, and if he has
abandoned both
good and evil,
there is no fear
for him.
(Dhammapada 39)

6
The scent of
flowers, incense
and jasmine cannot
travel against the
wind, but the
fragrance of good
deeds travels
in all directions
(Dhammapada 54)

7
That deed is not
well-done when,
after having done it,
one repents, and
when weeping with
tearful face,
one reaps
the fruit thereof.
(Dhammapada 67)






8
Look upon the
wise man who
shows up faults as
a revealer of
treasures.
It is good to know
such a man.
(Dhammapada 76)


9
Even the gods must
envy him whose senses
are under control like
well-trained horses, and
who has put away pride
and evil thoughts.
(Dhammapada 94)

10
Though one man
conquers a thousand
times a thousand
men in battle,
he who conquers
himself is the
greatest warrior.
(Dhammapada 103)

11
Let a man strive to
do good, and cease
to do evil.
If a man is slow
to do good,
he easily comes
to do evil.
(Dhammapada 116)

12
Like a well-trained horse
when touched by the whip,
let a man be active, let him
throw off this load of misery
by faith, goodness,
concentration,
understanding of the Law
and wisdom.
(Dhammapada 144)

13
Those who have not
led a good life and
have earned no merit
in their youth, lie
sighing for the past
like worn-out bows.
Dhammapada 156

14
Let a man follow
the path of
righteousness and
not the path of evil.
The righteous man
is happy both in this
world and the next.
Dhammapada 169

15
Cease to do evil,
do good,
cleanse your
own heart.
This is the teaching
of all the Buddhas.
Dhammapada 183

16
There is no fire like
greed, and no ill-
fortune like hatred.
There is no sorrow
like this bodily
existence; there is
no happiness like
Nirvana.
Dhammapada 202

17
Let a man overcome
hatred by kindness,
evil by goodness,
greed by generosity,
and lies by
telling the truth.
Dhammapada 223
