1. All the phenomena of existence have mind as their precursor, mind as their
supreme leader, and of mind are they made. If with an impure mind one speaks or
acts, suffering follows him in the same way as the wheel follows the foot of the
drawer (of the chariot).
2. All the phenomena of existence have mind as their precursor, mind as their
supreme leader, and of mind are they made. If with a pure mind one speaks or
acts, happiness follows him like his shadow that never leaves him.
Depends on the quality of our mind whether it is a friend or enemy.
Wholesome virtuous behavior progressively leads to the foremost. -- Buddha
