He is not noble who injures living beings.
He is called noble because
he is harmless towards all living beings.

Some recluses and brahmins, so called,
Are deeply attached to their own views;
People who only see one side of things
Engage in quarrels and disputes.

Udana VI, 4

The wise ones, ever meditative and steadfastly persevering,
alone experience Nibbana, the incomparable freedom from bondage.

"Abstain from all unwholesome deeds,
perform wholesome ones,
purify your mind"-
this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Freedom from lust is happiness in the world,
the going beyond all sensual desires.
But the crushing out of the conceit "I am"-
this is the highest happiness.

Udana 10


COMMENTS:
The conceit "I am" does not refer to the individual or to the spiritual and analytical capabilities that define the individual.

The conceit "I am" refers to the reactivity built up in the mind due to the individual's interaction with the physical universe. The nature of this reactivity is quite mechanical. It operates on the physical universe principle of "stimulus-response." For example, one hears certain words and, suddenly, the anger manifests itself.

Under Vipassana Meditation, Exercise # 2, one is attempting to make a differentiation between what is truly there to be observed, and what the mind tends to add (or subtract) to that observation. That latter is the manifestation of this reactivity.

In Vipassana meditation it is simply the awareness of this reactivity which ultimately brings it under control and, thus, gets rid of this conceit of "I am."

Ever grows the glory of him
who is energetic, mindful and pure in conduct,
discerning and self-controlled, righteous and heedful.

"As I am, so are others;
as others are, so am I."
Having thus identified self and others,
harm no one nor have them harmed.

Hate brings great misfortune,
hate churns up and harms the mind;
this fearful danger deep within
most people do not understand.

Winning gives birth to hostility.
Losing, one lies down in pain.
The calmed lie down with ease,
having set winning & losing aside.

If you hold yourself dear
then don't fetter yourself with evil,
for happiness isn't easily gained
by one who commits a wrong-doing.
