Daily Words of the Buddha for October 14, 2013

Yathāpi mūle anupaddave daḷhe,

chinnopi rukkho punareva rūhati,
evampi taṇhānusaye anūhate,
nibbattatī dukkhamidaṃ punappunaṃ.

Just as a tree, though cut down,
sprouts up again if its roots remain uncut and firm,
even so, until the craving that lies dormant is rooted out,
suffering springs up again and again.

Dhammapada 24.338

The Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom, 

translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
