"Yet it is not thus, Ananda, that the Tathagata is respected, venerated, esteemed, worshipped, and honoured in the highest degree. But, Ananda, whatever bhikkhu or bhikkhuni, layman or laywoman, abides by the Dhamma, lives uprightly in the Dhamma, walks in the way of the Dhamma, it is by such a one that the Tathagata is respected, venerated, esteemed, worshipped, and honoured in the highest degree. Therefore, Ananda, thus should you train yourselves: 'We shall abide by the Dhamma, live uprightly in the Dhamma, walk in the way of the Dhamma."
 ( Digha Nikaya Sutta )

Nam Tong pagoda

                                                         Through many of samsara's births
                                                         I hasten seeking, finding not
                                                         the builder of this house:
                                                         pain is birth again, again.

                                                         O Builder of this house, you're seen!
                                                         you shall not build a house again;
                                                         all you beams have given away,
                                                         rafters of the ridge decayed,
                                                         mind to the Unconditioned gone,
                                                         exhaustion of craving has it reached.

( Dhammapada Sutta )

                                                         Blessed is the birth of Buddhas,
                                                         blest True Dhamma's Teaching,
                                                         blest the Sangha's harmony
                                                         and blessed is their striving.

( Dhammapada Sutta )

Nam Tong pagoda

                                                         Human birth is hard to gain,
                                                         hard for mortals is their life,
                                                         to come to Dhamma True is hard,
                                                         rare the Buddhas' arising.
( Dhammapada Sutta )

Nam Tong pagoda

                                                         Victory gives rise to hate,
                                                         those defeated lie in pain,
                                                         happily rest the Peaceful
                                                         surrendering victory-defeat
( Dhammapada Sutta )

Nam Tong pagoda

                                                         Every evil never doing
                                                         and in wholesomeness increasing
                                                         and one's heart well-purifying:
                                                         this is the Buddhas' Teaching.
( Dhammapada Sutta )


Nam Tong pagoda

                                                         Who have not led the holy life
                                                         nor riches won while young,
                                                         they linger on as aged cranes
                                                         around a fished-out pond.
( Dhammapada Sutta )
