Think not lightly of good
saying, “It will not come to me.”
Drop by drop is
the water pot filled.
Likewise, the wise one,
gathering it little by little,
Fills oneself with good.
The Dhammapada: a collection of sayings of the Buddha in verse form
The Dhammapada is a text that is over two thousand years old and is rooted in the Buddhist tradition. It speaks to a fundamental power that we all have to use in our every day experiences: to grow more happiness, more love, and more wisdom inside ourselves. This is truly important these days when people feel pushed around and are often running on empty.
