Daily Words of the Buddha for April 17, 2017


Pāli Word a Day for April 17, 2017 — pārimaṃ tīraṃ — the further shore, nibbāna

Cakkhumā,
visamānīva,
vijjamāne parakkame.
Paṇḍito jīvalokasmiṃ,
pāpāni parivajjaye.

A person with good eyes,
encountering a treacherous, uneven place,
would try hard to avoid it.
A wise person, in the world of life,
should avoid evil deeds.

Udāna 5.43
Translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
