Buddhist Thought of the Day

Guard against anger
erupting in mind;
in mind, be restrained.
Having abandoned mental misconduct,
live conducting yourself well
in mind.

Those restrained in body
--the enlightened--
restrained in speech & in mind
--enlightened--
are the ones whose restraint is secure.
Dhammpada, 17, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
