Home » Quotes » Four Seeds To Guard

若不去淫,断一切清净种;
若不去酒,断一切智慧种;
若不去盗,断一切福德种;
若不去肉,断一切慈悲种。

– 净土宗六祖永明大师
《永明延寿禅师全书》

If not departing from lust,
this severs all seeds of purity.

If not departing from alcohol,
this severs all seeds of wisdom.

If not departing from theft,
this severs all seeds of blessed virtues.

If not departing from meat,
this severs all seeds of loving-kindness and compassion.

– 6th Patriarch Of Pure Land Tradition Great Master Yongming
(Complete Works Of Chan Master Yongming Yanshou)
