Dhamma… The Budda tought you to examine yourself, be careful of yourself.
Then you would see the defects of yourself and would gradually correct them until completely perfect.

“If he warns us, do not be angry with him.
Do revert such warning to ourself.
That is called Dhamma.
“Do not anticipate to afraid of the suffering or nuisance
or the finely pureness prior to the nature of mnd.
Happiness, sorrow, sadness or pureness, etc.,
which has been occured,
is deemed as dhamma – the warning of the mindfulness.
“If he/she is not separated, we will be separated.
Either he or we will be gone.
This is because the world has been full of leaving and
“Dhamma studying (ปริยัติ) is comparable to the building plan of a house.
Practice (ปฏิบัติ) is comparable to the process of building a house.
Attaining enlightenment (ปฏิเวท) is comparable to already living in the house.
“Committing a sin, either in the public or private place, is equally a sin.
This is because we are the one who committed a sin,
not because the sin was done publicly or privately.
“Remember this! Ignore whatever anyone talks.
The karma is belonged to that one, not to us.
Do not take it into the consideration in our mind.
“Those who have committed the sins enormously,
will be ejected downwards.
For the ones who always make the numerous merits,
will be flipped upwards.Remember this.
“Whoever do any acts greatly or slightly.
It is not our business.
For making the merits,
we do the good deeds for ourselves.
