Contrary Ways

From The Dhammapada (trs. Juan Mascaró)

Part 4

  1. If a man puts on the pure yellow robe with a soul which is impure, without self-harmony and truth, he is not worthy of the holy robe.
  2. But he who is pure from sin and whose soul is strong in virtue, who has self-harmony and truth, is worthy of the holy robe.
  3. Those who think the unreal is, and think the Real is not, they shall never reach the Truth, lost in the path of wrong thought.
  4. But those who know the Real is, and know the unreal is not, they all indeed reach the Truth, safe on the path of right thought.
