Buddhist Thought of the Day 2

Gains:
don't treat your own with scorn,
don't go coveting those of others.
A monk who covets those of others
attains
no concentration.

Even if he gets next to nothing,
he doesn't treat his gains with scorn.
Living purely, untiring:
he's the one
that the devas praise.
Dhammapada, 15, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
