DHAMMAPADA



XVII - Kodhavagga: Anger


221

Abandon anger,
be done with conceit,
get beyond every fetter.
When for name & form
you have no attachment
— have nothing at all —
no sufferings, no stresses, invade.


222

When anger arises,
whoever keeps firm control
as if with a racing chariot:
him

I call a master charioteer.
Anyone else,
a rein-holder —
that’s all.


223

Conquer anger
with lack of anger;
bad, with good;
stinginess, with a gift;
a liar, with truth.


224

By telling the truth;
by not growing angry;
by giving, when asked,
no matter how little you have:
by these three things
you enter the presence of devas.


225

Gentle sages,
constantly restrained in body,
go to the unwavering state
where, having gone,
there’s no grief.


226

Those who always stay wakeful,
training by day & by night,
keen on Unbinding:
their effluents come to an end.


227-228

This has come down from old, Atula,
& not just from today:
they find fault with one
who sits silent,

they find fault with one
who speaks a great deal,
they find fault with one
who measures his words.

There’s no one unfaulted in the world.
There never was,
will be,
nor at present is found
anyone entirely faulted
or entirely praised.


229-230

If knowledgeable people praise him,
having observed him
day after day
to be blameless in conduct, intelligent,
endowed with discernment & virtue:

like an ingot of gold —
who’s fit to find fault with him?
Even devas praise him.
Even by Brahmas he’s praised.


231-234

Guard against anger
erupting in body;
in body, be restrained.
Having abandoned bodily misconduct,
live conducting yourself well
in body.

Guard against anger
erupting in speech;
in speech, be restrained.
Having abandoned verbal misconduct,
live conducting yourself well
in speech.

Guard against anger
erupting in mind;
in mind, be restrained.
Having abandoned mental misconduct,
live conducting yourself well
in mind.

Those restrained in body
— the enlightened —
restrained in speech & in mind
— enlightened —
are the ones whose restraint is secure.
