Shantideva

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 6.45.57 AM“All the joy the world contains

Has come through wishing happiness for others

All the misery the world contains

Has come from wanting pleasure for oneself.

Is there need for lengthy explanation?

Childish beings look out for themselves

While buddhas labor for the good of others.

See the difference that divides them!…

By brining joy to beings, I please the Buddhas also,

By wounding them, I wound the Buddhas too.”

— Shantideva
