Buddhist Thought of the Day

You yourself should reprove yourself,
should examine yourself.
As a self-guarded monk
with guarded self,
mindful, you dwell at ease.

Your own self is
your own mainstay.
Your own self is
your own guide.
Therefore you should
watch over yourself--
as a trader, a fine steed.
Dhammapada, 25, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
