Bright Blue Marble



Victory breeds enmity,
for the conquered suffer.
The peaceful live happily,
discarding victory and defeat.
There is no fire like craving,
no loss like hatred,
no affliction like the aggregates,
and no bliss higher than Peace.
Hunger is the worst disease.
The aggregates are the worst affliction.
Understanding this as it is,
the wise realize Nibb�na, the bliss supreme.
Health is the highest reward.
Contentment is the greatest of riches.
The trustworthy are the best kin.
Nibb�na is the highest bliss.
