ombuddha

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that
I am here and you are out there.
Yasutani Roshi.

What should be done by one who’s skilled in wholesomeness To gain the state of peacefulness is this: One must be able, upright, straight and not proud, Easy to speak to, mild and well content, Easily satisfied and not caught up In too much bustle, and frugal in one’s ways, With senses calmed, intelligent, not bold, Not being covetous when with other folk, Abstaining from the ways that wise ones blame, And this the thought that one should always hold: “May beings all live happily and safely And may their hearts rejoice within themselves. Whatever there may be with breath of life, Whether they be frail or very strong, Without exception, be they long or short Or middle-sized, or be they big or small, Or thick, or visible, or invisable, Or whether they dwell far or they dwell near, Those that are here, those seeking to exist- May beings all rejoice within themselves. Let no one bring about another’s ruin And not despise in any way or place, Let them not wish each other any ill From provocation or from enmity.”
The Buddha.

To gain the state of peacefulness is this:
One must be able, upright, straight and not proud,
Easy to speak to, mild and well content,
Easily satisfied and not caught up
In too much bustle, and frugal in one’s ways,
With senses calmed, intelligent, not bold,
Not being covetous when with other folk,
Abstaining from the ways that wise ones blame,
And this the thought that one should always hold:
“May beings all live happily and safely
And may their hearts rejoice within themselves.
Whatever there may be with breath of life,
Whether they be frail or very strong,
Without exception, be they long or short
Or middle-sized, or be they big or small,
Or thick, or visible, or invisable,
Or whether they dwell far or they dwell near,
Those that are here, those seeking to exist-
May beings all rejoice within themselves.
Let no one bring about another’s ruin
And not despise in any way or place,
Let them not wish each other any ill
From provocation or from enmity.”

The Buddha.
