No one Other can ever Save You!
The Blessed Buddha
Make an island of yourself. Be lamp and light for yourself,
Make yourself your refuge: There is no other refuge!
Make the Dhamma your island: Make the Dhamma your lamp & light,
the Dhamma your refuge: There is no other refuge!
Dīgha Nikāya 2.165
By self alone, is harm done.
By self alone, does one suffer from own evil.
By self alone, is harm left undone.
By self alone, is one purified & thereby saved.
Both destruction and salvation is the work of
No-one can purify another...

With oneself well tamed, one gains a saviour
hard to find.
