Harmlessness is the Best Protection!

The Blessed Buddha once said:
May all creatures, all living things,
all beings without any exception,
experience good happiness only!
May they not fall into any harm.
Anguttara Nikāya 4.67

Solitude is happiness for one, who is content,
who has heard the Dhamma and clearly sees.
Non-violence is happiness in this world:
Harmlessness towards all living beings.
Udāna 10

The Noble is not one, who injures living beings.
The Noble is one, who never injures living beings.
Dhammapada 270


Ever are the true disciples of the Buddha
well awake and quite aware. Constantly they
meditate both day and night on Harmlessness!
Dhammapada 296-301


The one who has left all violence,
who never harms any being at all,
whether they are moving or still,
who neither kill, nor causes to kill,
such one, harmless, is a Holy One!
Dhammapada 405


More on Harmlessness (
Ahimsā = Non-Violence):

Harmlessness is Holy...
Have a nice & noble day!
Friendship is the Greatest! Bhikkhu Samāhita _/\_ ]
