Buddhist Thought of the Day

Here the first things
for a discerning monk
are guarding the senses,
contentment,
restraint in line with the Patimokkha.

He should associate with admirable friends,
living purely, untiring,
hospitable by habit,
skilled in his conduct.
Gaining a manifold joy,
he will put an end
to suffering & stress.
Dhammapada, 25, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
