745 – “ना जक्का वासलो होति न जक्का होति ब्रह्मो, कम्मना वसालो होति कम्मना होति ब्राह्मो। “

“Na jaccā vasalo hoti na jaccā hoti brāhmaṇo, Kammanā vasalo hoti kammanā hoti brāhmaṇo.”

“Not by birth does one become an outcast, not by birth does one become a brahmin. By one’s action one becomes an outcast, by one’s action one becomes a brahmin.”

–Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha (more…)

67 – “Whatever a monk keeps pursuing with his thinking & pondering, that becomes the inclination of his awareness. If a monk keeps pursuing thinking imbued with sensuality, abandoning thinking imbued with renunciation, his mind is bent by that thinking imbued with sensuality. If a monk keeps pursuing thinking imbued with ill will, abandoning thinking imbued with non-ill will, his mind is bent by that thinking imbued with ill will. If a monk keeps pursuing thinking imbued with harmfulness, abandoning thinking imbued with harmlessness, his mind is bent by that thinking imbued with harmfulness.”

– Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha
