Comparing Oneself with Others

The group of six monks chase off the group of seventeen monks and take their rooms. The Buddha lays down a rule and speaks the following verse.

98. Sabbe tasanti daṇḍassa, sabbe bhāyanti Maccuno,
Attānaṁ upamaṁ katvā, na haneyya na ghātaye.

Everyone trembles at the stick,
Everyone is in fear of Death,
Seeing oneself in the other,
One should not kill or have them killed.

from Buddhist Wisdom Verses
