Daily Words of the Buddha for July 29, 2017


Pāli Word a Day for July 29, 2017 — anāsava — free from the four intoxications

Na jaccā vasalo hoti
na jaccā hoti brāhmaṇo.
Kammunā vasalo hoti,
kammunā hoti brāhmaṇo

One is not low because of birth
nor does birth make one holy.
Deeds alone make one low,
deeds alone make one holy.

Sutta Nipāta 1.136
