Buddhist Thought of the Day

A man long absent
comes home safe from afar.
His kin, his friends, his companions,
delight in his return.

In just the same way,
when you've done good
& gone from this world
to the world beyond,
your good deeds receive you--
as kin, someone dear
come home.
Dhammapada, 16, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
