Daily Dharma: Avoid Doing Harm

The Daily Dharma from Tricycle:

Avoid Doing Harm

If you wonder whether evil karma can be neutralized or not, then know that it is neutralized by desire for goodness. But they who knowingly do evil deeds, exchange a mouthful of food for infamy. They who knowing not wither they themselves are bound, yet presume to pose as guides for others, do injury both to themselves and others. If pain and sorrow ye desire sincerely to avoid, avoid, then, doing harm to others.

~ W.Y. Evans-Wentz, Tibet's Great Yogi Milarepa
