EVIL

  T I T L E (1) :

Make haste in doing gook,
And check your mind from evil,
Whoso is slow in making merit-
His mind delights in evil.

  T I T L E (2) :

Should a man commit evil,
Let him not do it again and again,
Nor turn his heart to delight therein;
Painful is the heaping-up of evil.

  T I T L E (3) :

Should a man perform merit,
Let him do it again and again,
And trun his mind to delight therein;
Blissful is the piling-up of merit.

  T I T L E (4) :

For the evil-doer all is well,
While the evil ripens not;
But when his evil yields its fruit,
He sees the evil results.

  T I T L E (5) :

For the good man, perhaps, all is ill,
While as yet his good is not ripe;
But when it bears its fruit,
He sees the good results.

  T I T L E (6) :

Despise not evil,
Saying, 'It will not come to me';
Drop by drop is the waterpot filled,
Lidewise the fool, gathering little by little,
Fills himself with evil.

  T I T L E (7) :

Despise not merit,
Saying, 'It will not come to me';
Drop by drop is the waterpot filled,
Likewise the man, gathering little by little
Fills himself with merit.

  T I T L E (8) :

As a rich merchant, with small escort,
Avoids a dangerous path,
As one who loves life avoids poison,
Even so should one shun evil.

  T I T L E (9) :

If no wound there be in the hand,
One may handle poison;
Poison does not affect one who has no wound;
There is no ill for him who does no wrong.

  T I T L E (10) :

Whosoever offends a harmless person,
One pure and guiltles,
Upon that very fool the evil recoils
Even as fine dust thrown against the wind.

  T I T L E (11) :

Some are born in teh womb again;
The evil-doers are born in hell;
The good go to heaven;
The Undefiled Ones attain Nibbana.

  T I T L E (12) :

Neither in the sky nor in mid-ocean,
Nor in the clefts of the rocks,
Nowhere in the world is a place to be found
Where abiding one may escape from
(the consequences of) an evil deed.

  T I T L E (13) :

Neither in the sky no in mid-ocean,
Nor in the clefts of the rocks,
Nowhere in the world is found that place
Where abiding one will not be overcome by death.
