Master ur senses, What u taste and smell, What you see, what u hear. In all things be a master. Of what u do and say and think. Be free.
If desires are not uprooted, Sorrows grow again in you.
Both go into the dark. And in the next world suffer For they offend truth.
One man denies the truth. Another denies his own actions.
Thirty-six streams are rushing toward you! Desire and pleasure and lust...Play in your imagination with them And they will sweep you away.
If u kill,lie or steal,Commit adultery or drink,U dig up ur own roots. And if u can't master urself,The harm u do turns against u Grievously
It is you who must make the effort. Masters only point the way.
Of your words and your thoughts. Delight in meditation And in solitude.
You are a seeker.Delight in the mastery Of your hands and your feet,
If you are happy At the expense of another man's happiness, You are forever bound.
The fool laughs at generosity. The miser cannot enter heaven. But the master finds joy in giving And happiness is his reward.
Through this world and on beyond!
Follow the way of virtue. Follow the way joyfully
If the traveller cannot find Master or friend to go with him, Let him travel alone Rather than with a fool for company.
The rain could turn to gold And still your thirst would not be slaked. Desire is unquenchable Or it ends in tears, even in heaven.
You are far from the end of your journey. The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart. See how you love.
Do not live in the world, In distraction and false dreams.
Your work is to discover your work And then with all your heart
Does the spoon taste the soup? A fool may live all his life In the company of a master And still miss the way.
Happiness or sorrow - Whatever befalls you, Walk on Untouched, unattached.
Free from passion and desire, You have stripped the thorns from the stem.
The greatest impurity is ignorance. Free yourself from it. Be pure.
Beware of the anger of the mouth. Master your words.
Let it serve truth.
Beware of the anger of the body. Master the body.
Do not look for bad company Or live with men who do not care. Find friends who love the truth. Drink deeply. Live in serenity and joy.
Turn away from mischief. Again and again, turn away. Before sorrow befalls you. Set your heart on doing good.
How bitterly he suffers!
The fool is his own enemy. The mischief is his undoing.
Free yourself from pleasure and pain.
Do not let pleasure distract you From meditation, from the way.
Can you hide from your own mischief. Not in the sky, Not in the midst of the ocean, Nor deep in the mountains, Nowhere.
For a while the fool's mischief Tastes sweet, sweet as honey. Bit in the end it turns bitter. And how bitterly he suffers!
Why do what you will regret? Why bring tears upon yourself? Do only what you do not regret, And fill yourself with joy.
Look not for recognition But follow the awakened And set yourself free.
Awake. Be the witness of your thoughts.
You are the master.
By your own efforts Waken yourself, watch yourself. And live joyfully.
By your own folly You will be brought as low As you worst enemy wishes.
The wise man tells you Where you have fallen And where you yet may fall - Invaluable secrets! Follow him, follow the way.
The traveller who hesitates Only raises dust on the road.
Do what you have to do Resolutely, with all your heart.
Takes time to catch up with him. Like the embers of a fire It smoulders within him.
Fresh milk takes time to sour. So a fool's mischief
There is pleasure And there is bliss. Forgo the first to possess the second.
How easy it is to see your brother's faults, How hard it is to face your own.
The ignorant man is an ox. He grows in size, not in wisdom.
The true master lives in truth, In goodness and restraint, Non-violence, moderation and purity.
Whoever follows impure thoughts Suffers in this world and the next. In both worlds he suffers And how greatly.
Desire never crosses the path Of virtuous and wakeful men.
