Daily Words of the Buddha for May 29, 2017
Idha tappati, pecca tappati,
pāpakārī ubhayattha tappati.
"Pāpaṃ me katan"ti tappati,
bhiyyo tappati, duggatiṃ gato.
Idha nandati, pecca nandati,
katapuñño ubhayattha nandati.
"Puññaṃ me katan"ti nandati,
bhiyyo nandati, suggatiṃ gato.
Agony now, agony hereafter,
the wrong-doer suffers agony in both worlds.
Agonized now by the knowledge that one has done wrong,
one suffers more agony, gone to a state of woe.
Rejoicing now, rejoicing hereafter,
the doer of wholesome actions rejoices in both worlds.
Rejoicing now in the knowledge that one has acted rightly,
one rejoices more, gone to a state of bliss.
Dhammapada 1.17, 1.18
