诸恶莫作,
诸善奉行,
自净其意。
是诸佛教。

– 释迦牟尼佛 (法句经)

Of all evils, do not do them.
Of all good, practise them.
With self-purification of the mind,
These are all Buddhas’ teachings.

– Sakyamuni Buddha (Dharmapada)

[3] leading to suffering from created bad karma.
[4] Repeat [1]-[3] in this life, and the next.

Grievance In Two Lifetimes (二世冤)

[1] Do good, which creates good karma,
[2] which finish ripening in the next life,
[3] leading to suffering from created bad karma.

Grievance In Three Lifetimes (三世冤)

[1] Do good, which creates good karma,
[2] which finish ripening in the life after the next,
[3] leading to suffering from created bad karma.
[4] Repeat [1]-[3] in the life after the next, and the next.

Liberation In One Lifetime (一生解脱)

[1] Learn and practise mindfulness of Amituofo [Amitabha Buddha].

Even good is not good enough;
we need to become pure,
or we will still be trapped by good and evil.
