    Dhammapada Verse 253: Fault Finding

    Verse 253
    He who seeks another’s faults, who is ever censorious—his cankers grow. He is far from destruction of the cankers.

    Dhammapada Verse 252: Winnowing Chaff

    Dhammapada Verse 252: Winnowing Chaff

    Verse 252
    Easily seen is the fault of others, but one’s own fault is difficult to see. Like chaff one winnows another’s faults, but hides one’s own, even as a crafty fowler hides behind sham branches.

    Dhammapada Verses 249 & 250: Disturbed

    Verse 249
    People give according to their faith or regard. If one becomes discontented with the food and drink given by others, one does not attain meditative absorption, either by day or by night.

    Verse 250
    But he in who this (discontent) is fully destroyed, uprooted and extinct, he attains absorption, both by day and by night.

    Know this, O good man: evil things are difficult to control. Let not greed and wickedness drag you to protracted misery.
