LEAVE ALL QUARRELS BEHIND
Speak quietly to everyone, and they too will
be gentle in their speech.
Harsh words hurt, and come back to
If your mind is still, like a broken gong,
you have entered nirvana, leaving all
quarrels behind you.
Patiently I shall bear harsh words as the
elephant bears arrows on the battlefield.
People are often inconsiderate.
Best are those who have trained their mind
to endure harsh words patiently.
