Turn to yourself

 

When you are offended at any man's fault,
turn to yourself and study your own failings.
Then you will forget your anger.

    That saying only works if you are innocent. Tyrants will try and make you believe that "You" are always the one in the wrong, no-matter-what….. With all their false accusations when you are "Actually" innocent. So why do they not take this advice? They believe that they are justified…. No matter what and therefore without blame.

A Handful of Leaves

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.

Just the way it is

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
2. Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.
3. Do not, under any circumstances, depend on a partial feeling.
