Think of you
of what they have done or not done.
Think of your own faults,
of the things you have done or not done.
Taken from Dhammapada.
The title, Dhammapada, is a compound term composed of dhamma and pada, each word having a number of denotations and connotations. Generally, dhamma can refer to the Buddha's "doctrine" or an "eternal truth" or "righteousness" or all "phenomena" and, at its root, pada means "foot" and thus by extension, especially in this context, means either "path" or "verse" or both. English translations of this text's title have used various combination of these and related words.
Sharing light with Kimmy. Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.
