Don't 'The Hell With Him'


Don't 'The Hell With Him' 

By Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

***********

 

Don’t recklessly spew ‘the hell with him’
when it’s about another human comrade.
Instead, aid and support him, practicing full-scale
accepting ones friend in birth, aging, illness, and death. 
 
Helping friends is the same as helping ourselves:
the mind intent on benefiting a friend
naturally weakens selfishness in many ways, so
whatever the case, don’t lash out ‘the hell with him.’
 
However much selfishness diminishes, please
see how one thereby gets closer to Nibbana.
Save oneself by not wasting it on ‘the hell with him’
— please ponder this matter each one of you.
