Do not lose a moment of doing good.
Protect your mind from evil.
Whoever neglects doing good
Is inviting addiction to evil.

Don’t underestimate evil, saying,
“It can’t happen to me.”
As a pot slowly fills up with water, drop by drop,
So does the fool, little by little,
Become full of evil.

If a man has a hand free of wounds,
He can take poison in his hand.
The poison cannot penetrate the hand that is free of wounds.
Likewise, a man is not guilty
When he acts with no evil intention.
