In the small appears the great; in the great appears the small.

Translated by Hisao Inagaki. 





I t is like the towns and villages, they all depend on the great ground where they stand. All the herbs, grasses, flowers, trees, and woods also depend on the ground for their growth. With these ten wholesome ways of actions it is the same. All men and devas are established (in their human and deva nature) depending on them. The illumination of all the Shravakas, of all the Pratyekas, the way of the Bodhisattva, all Buddhadharmas they all are attained and come to fruition due to these ten wholesome great grounds.




Buddhism Quote n°7950 | 
Translated by Saddhaloka Bhikkhu. 





Y ou should know that these ten wholesome actions can lead up to the completion of the Ten Powers (of the Tathagata), of the (Four Kinds of) Fearlessness, of the Eighteen Dharmas that distinguish (the Buddha) and of all Buddhadharmas. You should therefore practice and train with diligence.




Buddhism Quote n°7949 |
