The Path

buddha_statue
 
Of paths, the best is the Eightfold,
the Four Truths are the best truths;
the best virtue is detachment,
best among men he who follows Dhamma.
 
*
This is the path.
It leads to insight. It liberates.
Follow it.
Mara the temptress is helpless before it.
 
*
End your suffering. Follow it.
This is my path, preached
after the arrows fell away from me.
 
*
Work out your Nirvana with diligence.
The Buddhas only set examples.
Those who follow Dhamma and practice meditation
are freed from the traps of Mara the temptress.
 
*
Whatever consists of component parts must perish.
It is wisdom to know this.
This knowledge destroys grief and leads to liberation.
 
*
Whatever consists of component parts is full of greif.
It is wisdom to know this.
This knowledge destroys grief and leads to liberation.
 
*
Whatever consists of component parts is not the real self.
It is wisdom to know this.
This knowledge destroys grief and leads to liberation.
 
*
Wake up! It is time to wake up!
You are young strong–why do you waiver,
why are you lazy and irresolute?
This is not the way to wisdom.
 
*
Be strict with speech, control your mind,
let not the body be evil.
This is the way to wisdom,
these are the three roads leading to it.
 
*
Meditation brings wisdom,
lack of meditation is folly.
These are the two roads,
one leading forward, one backwards.
Choose the right one,
the right one that leads to wisdom.
 
*
Not one tree–cut down the whole forest!
There is danger in the forest.
Cut down the forest of desires, O bhikkus,
and discover the road of liberation.
 
*
Destroy the smallest desire for women!
It sticks one’s mind to the world,
as a sucking calf sticks to its mother.
 
*
Take the ego like an autumn lily
and snap it with your fingers!
Proceed then on the path to Nirvana
with one who has reached as your guide.
 
*
“This I choose for my winter home;
this for the monsoon, this for summer.”
The words of a fool.
He fails to see the final destination.
 
*
Like floods that come and sweep away a sleeping village,
death descends on the drowsy mind greedy for children and cattle.
 
*
Nothing saves!
Not father, not sons, not kinsmen,
They cannot save a man from death.
 
*
Therefore, think deeply.
Like the wise and virtuous man,
stay on the path that leads to liberation.
