Dread and Hatred

11141250_655239131242232_6533337852044491929_nWhen the takers of life,

by reason of depriving others of life,

breed dread and hatred in this world,

or when they breed dread and hatred in the next world,

they experience in the mind pain and grief.

But they who abstain from taking life

breed no dread and hatred in this world

and in the worlds to come.

Thus, that dread and hatred has ceased for them

who abstain from depriving others of life.

―Buddha Shakyamuni
