Looking After Oneself, Looking After Others

My Post (21)
Whether it’s preventing the spread of COVID-19 or just trying to grease the wheels of interpersonal interaction, the Lord Buddha’s advice is just as true 2500 years after he first gave it:
“Protecting oneself, one protects others.” (Attanam rakkhanto param rakkhati.)
“Protecting others, one protects oneself.” (Param rakkhanto attanam rakkhati.)
—Satipatthana Samyutta, No. 19
