Grief Vs Joy


The evil-doer grieves here and hereafter;
he grieves in both the worlds.
He laments and is afflicted,
recollecting his own impure deeds.

The doer of good rejoices here and hereafter;
he rejoices in both the worlds.
He rejoices and exults,
recollecting his own pure deeds.

– The Buddha
(Dhammapada Verses 15-16)
