Tibetan Book of Everyday Wisdom

Post by Nicholas Weeks » Fri May 25, 2018 4:52 am

The latest from Wisdom pubs. in their Library of Tibetan Classics. Here is how one of the eleven texts begins:
[147] Homage to the Bhagavān, master of the two systems of norms.

1 After respectfully bowing to the feet of Lord of Sages
who knows the two systems of norms exactly as they are,
I will briefly set forth some wise sayings
differentiating the wise and the foolish.

2 Those said to be wise are those who know
the ways of the world or of Dharma.
Just as there are said to be two types of the wise,
the foolish are also explained to be of two types.

3 The first type of wise person will be meritorious in this life;
the second will be meritorious in this and future lives.
The two types of fools are explained as
ruining this and their future lives, respectively.
