Dhammapada – Verse 399

Akkosakabharadvaja Vatthu

Akkosam vadhabandhanca
aduttho yo titikkhati
khantibalam balanikam
tamaham brumi brahmanam.

Verse 399: Him I call a brahmana, who, without anger endures abuse, beating and being bound, and to whom the strength of patience is like the strength of an army.

May I recall that all that befalls me is a result of my own kamma and my clinging to greed, hatred and ignorance.
