Dhammapada Memorization

Manopubbangama dhamma manosettha manomaya

manasa ce padutthena bhasati va karoti va

tato nam dukkhamanveti

cakkamva vahato padam.

All mental phenomena have mind as their forerunner; they have mind as their chief; they are mind-made. If one speaks or acts with an evil mind, ‘dukkha’ follows him just as the wheel follows the hoofprint of the ox that draws the cart.

I have been feeling as though I have been spending my free time in dissolution. Scrolling through Facebook and Reddit and slowing the mind to alight wherever it likes. I had been slowly making my way through the Anguttara Nikaya but I want to develop an even closer connection and knowledge of the Dhamma and I figure learning the Dhammapada by heart is the way to go. So, prepare to be bored as I will post one verse a day.
