    Dhammapada Verse 1: Suffering is Mind-made

    Dhammapada Verse 1: Suffering is Mind-made

    Verse 1
    Mind precedes all mental states. Mind is their chief; they are all mind-wrought. If with an impure mind a person speaks or acts suffering follows him like the wheel that follows the foot of the ox.

    Dhammapada Verses 7 & 8: A Weak Tree and a Mountain of Solid Rock

    Dhammapada Verses 7 & 8: A Weak Tree and a Mountain of Solid Rock

    Verse 7
    Just as a storm throws down a weak tree, so does Mara overpower the man who lives for the pursuit of pleasures, who is uncontrolled in his senses, immoderate in eating, indolent, and dissipated.

    Verse 8
    Just as a storm cannot prevail against a rocky mountain, so Mara can never overpower the man who lives meditating on the impurities, who is controlled in his senses, moderate in eating, and filled with faith and earnest effort.
