There are thousands upon thousands of students who have practiced meditation and obtained its fruits.
Do not doubt its possibilities because of the simplicity of the method.
If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?
Who gains by being forgiven and by forgiving?
The one that forgives is lord even of him that he forgives.
Renunciation of the world does not constitute wearing coarse clothes and eating stale bread.
Real renunciation lies in curbing desires.
Regard him as one who points out treasure,
The wise one who seeing your faults rebukes you.
Stay with this sort of sage.
For the one who stays with a sage of this sort,
Things get better, not worse.
Everywhere, truly, those of integrity stand apart.
They, the good, don’t chatter in hopes of favor or gains.
When touched now by pleasure, now pain,
The wise give no sign of high or low.
Let us not talk of karma, but simply of responsibility toward the whole world.
