STONEPEACE (1011-1020)


[1011]

The Buddhadharma is 
the only full solution 
to the problem of 
how to fully overcome 
the suffering of one and all.

[1012]

The only fault with fault-finding 
is when there is only fault-finding, 
thus not seeing any virtues in others at all.

[1013]

Those who see no virtues 
in others personally 
lack the virtue of appreciation.

[1013]

While we can only offer others 
what we have, 
we should also aspire to offer 
what we should.

[1014]

Claiming truth to be slander,
and slander to be truth
is the most evil slander –
against the truth and the truthful.

[1015]

The severely deluded see
poor rationalisations of mistakes as truths and
proper admonishments on them as slander.

[1016]

To awaken those very deluded,
those more awake must
kindly ‘risk’ being disdained,
by sharing the truth with them.

[1017]

To speak lies with ill will
to delude is slander.
To speak truths with good will
to awaken is compassion.

[1018]

TRUTHS shared about those
NOT true to the Dharma
in teaching and conduct
to awaken others
is NOT slander.

[1019]

If saying ‘offensive’ truths is ‘slander’,
the fully awakened who say full truths
would be the greatest ‘offenders’.

[1020]

The most insufferable 
have so much suffering 
that it spills over 
to give others suffering.
