The Teaching of the Buddhas

31. Cease to do evil, learn to do good,
Purify the mind –
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Despising none, harming none,
Being restrained by the monastic rules,
Moderation in food, living in solitude
And devotion to meditation –
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Therefore, the meditation on love
Should be done for oneself and others.
All should be suffused with love –
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Dhammapada 183, 185 Milindapanha 394
