He lives only to be a help to others

–questions of king Milinda

why should we cling to this

perishable body?

In the eyes of the wise,

the only thing it is good for is to

benefit one’s  fellow creatures

–katha sarit sagara

full of love for all things in

the world,

practising virtue in order to

benefit others

-this man only is happy

-fa kheu pi u

though  a man conquor a

million men in battle,

a greater

conqueror still is

he who conquors himself
