Who to Blame?

6.43 Their weapons and my body—

Both are causes of my suffering!

They their weapons drew, while I held out my body.

Who then is more worthy of my anger?

6.44 This human form is like a running sore;

Merely touched, it cannot stand the pain!

I’m the one who clings to it with blind attachment;

Whom should I resent when pain occurs?
