The Buddha


The Buddha (6th-5th century BCE)

“Not because of matted hair,
not by means of ancestry, not by birth
does a person become superior.
But because one is honest and just
he is at ease, he is superior.”

  • The Dhammapada (Verses on the Way, Chapter 26), recorded in the 3rd century BCE. Translation by Glenn Wallis, 2004.
