Dada is the sun, Dada is the egg. Dada is the Police of the Police.

Patience




The stream of suffering is cut through by patience;

There’s nothing inappropriate in wanting that!

Thus when enemies or friends

Are seen to act improperly,

Be calm and call to mind

That everything arises from conditions

*

If those who are like wanton children

Are by nature prone to injure others,

What point is there in being angry-

Like resenting fire for its heat?

And if their faults are fleeting and contingent,

If living beings are by nature wholesome,

It’s likewise senseless to resent them-

As well be angry at the sky for having clouds!
