Daily Words of the Buddha for November 07, 2013

Na jaccā vasalo hoti
na jaccā hoti brāhmaṇo.
Kammunā vasalo hoti,
kammunā hoti brāhmaṇo

One is not low because of birth
nor does birth make one holy.
Deeds alone make one low,
deeds alone make one holy.

Sutta Nipāta 1.136
Gemstones of the Good Dhamma, 
compiled and translated by Ven. S. Dhammika
