Three Kinds of Mental Purity...
The Blessed Buddha once said:
is purity of mental purity threefold?
Herein, someone is without any jealousy, possessiveness, and greedy envy.
Whatever another person possesses of goods
and property, he does
or yearn for it like this: "Oh may I get what that other person
2: He is freed from ill-will,
harbours no angry thoughts in his mind!
Rather he thinks:
"Oh, may these beings be free from
all hate and ill-will,
and may they lead a happy and easy life free from all trouble
He possesses right understanding and this unshakable right view:
Gifts, donations, and offerings are not worthless. There is a fruit
result of all advantageous and disadvantageous actions!
There is this world,
and there is the next world. There are duties
towards father and mother.
There are spontaneously reborn beings.
There are in this world recluses and
monks of right, pure and perfect living,
who have themselves understood and
directly realized both this very
world and the next too, and who are able to
them both....This is the threefold mental purity,
