dhammapada six

Better than a meaningless statement of a thousand words is a single word which, when heard, produces peace.

Better then a thousand verses that pile up meaningless remarks is a single verse of deep meaning which, when heard, produces peace.

Better than reciting a hundred verses that have no meaning is reciting one verse of Dharma which, when heard, produces peace.

The one who has conquered himself is a far greater hero than the one who has defeated a thousand times a thousand men.

Beings who have mastered themselves move always with restraint. How much better to conquer oneself than to conquer a host of others!


Moving always without restraint.

What an amazing feeling that would be!

How perfectly marvelous to flow so... Effortlessly? In control without being controlling.----

Sam wants me to push lots of R's now: rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

No restraint at all that boy!


Hi Daniel,

I like the one verse.

I like the two and I like the six.

I like the number six verse that collects peace.

Love, Sam
