      Ask a monk

      All reality is preceeded by the mind. They are governed by the mind and made or formed by the mind. If, with an impure mind, one acts or speaks, suffering follows therefrom as the wheel of the cart follows the ox that pulls it.

      Dhammapada verse 1

      The Mind preceeds all things

      All dhamas are proceeded by the mind, they are governed by the mind, they are created by the mind, formed by the mind.

      All this reality is formed by the mind.(16:42)

      (17:08) If one acts or speaks with a pure and radiant mind ( a beautifull mind) happiness folliws therefrom like a shadow that never leaves.

      I like the many 'Ask a monk' Youtubes. I just found his teachings. I found one he put up yesterday (verse 50) so I went looking for the begining, as in verse 1.

      There are 423 verses in the Dhammapada

      He follows just the words of Buddha. That makes him a Theravadin Buddhist monk.

      The earliest available teachings of the Buddha are to be found in [u]Pali[/b] literature and belongs to the school of the Theravadins, who may be called the most orthodox school of Buddhism. This school admits the human characteristics of the Buddha, and is characterised by a psychological understanding of human nature; and emphasises a meditative approach to the transformation of consciousness.

      Here is his Youtube called:

      Dhammapada

      verse 1:

      All reality is preceeded by the mind. They are governed by the mind and made or formed by the mind. If, with an impure mind, one acts or speaks, suffering follows therefrom as the wheel of the cart follows the ox that pulls it.

      verse 2:

      All dhamas are proceeded by the mind, they are governed by the mind, they are created by the mind, formed by the mind.

      All this reality is formed by the mind.

      If one acts or speaks with a pure and radiant mind ( a beautifull mind) happiness follows therefrom like a shadow that never leaves.

      verse 3 & 4:

      Clinging to Percieved Wrongs only leads to more wrong.

      Verse 3:

      He or she, this person, scolded me, they hurt me, they beat me, they defeated me ( or they destroyed me).

      A person who clings, or grasps onto, or who binds themselves to these thoughts, for them, their quarrells never cease, are never appeased, are never tranquilized, there never finished.

      But

      Verse 4:

      For a person who doesn't cling to these thoughts ("He scolded me, he hurt me, he beat me, he defeated me"), these quarrells are appeased, these quarrels are tranquilized, they are finnished. (that is found at the 3:15 to 4:15 point of the 22:13 minute Youtube below)

      The prophet Kif was returning home after a long day of ceremony and ritual and came upon the street corner his house fell upon. On it he saw two angels one dressed in white and one in black. Turning his collar to the wind he started in the other direction muttering to himself.
      When angels are found hustling on street corners it would be better to seek spirituality in the bordello.
