Mind matters most

Mind proceeds all phenomena,

Mind matters most,

Everything is mind made.

If within an impure mind,

You speak or act,

Suffering follows you,

As the cartwheel follows,

The foot of the draft animal.

If with a pure mind,

You speak or act,

Then happiness follows you,

As a shadow that never departs.

- First words of Dhammapada -
