The Buddha


The Buddha (lived c. 6th-5th century BCE)

“As a bee flying from a flower,
having taken up its nectar,
does not harm its luster or fragrance,
so should the sage wander in the village.”

  • The Dhammapada (Verses on the Way, Chapter 4), recorded in the 3rd century BCE. Translation by Glenn Wallis, 2004.
