When a house is on fire,
the vessel salvaged
is the one that will be of use,
not the one left there to burn.
So when the world is on fire
with aging and death,

one should salvage [one’s wealth] by giving:

what’s given is well salvaged.
Whoever here is restrained
in body, speech, and awareness;

who makes merit while he’s alive:

that will be for his bliss after death.

The Buddha, Baby, the original rapper

Jeje, Cafecito en el buda bar? Ya me imaginaba yo que tu eras fuego que se riega por la tierra, el aire alborota y el agua apaga.

Corre la llama para calentar ese café. Coño que rico se ve, espumita y budismo.
