Simplicity

284. Conquer anger with love,
Evil with good,
Meanness with generosity,
And lies with truth.

Dhammapada 223

When the higher teachings seem so far out of reach and the idea of Nibbana unattainable the simplicity of the teachings in the Dhammapada soothes a weary heart and fraught mind.
May we cultivate the good, restrain ourselves from evil and purify the mind.
