All mental phenomena have mind as their forerunner; they have mind as their chief; they are mind-made.

If one speaks or acts with an evil mind, dissatisfaction follows him just as the wheel follows the hoofprint of the ox that draws the cart.

— The Buddha
(Dhammapada: Verse 1)

一切唯心造:
All are only from the mind created‘,
with all being physical and mental phenomena.

Thus, mind is over matter,
as in mind directs matter,
mattering first and thus more.

Mind directs matters,
psychically and physically,
karmically and naturally…

which re’directs’ mind,
which redirects matter,
which re’directs’ mind…

Thus, mind your mind well.
Be the master of your mind,
or be mastered by your (unruly) mind.

Master your mind well,
to master your matter(s),
to master everything well.

All mental phenomena have mind as their forerunner; they have mind as their chief; they are mind-made.

If one speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.

— The Buddha
(Dhammapada: Verse 2)
