Conquer Just One

Buddha scroll 2

Greater in battle
than the man who would conquer
a thousand-thousand men,
is he who would conquer
just one —
himself.
Better to conquer yourself
than others.
When you’ve trained yourself,
living in constant self-control,
neither a deva nor gandhabba,
nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.

  1. Wise words dear Eddie.. Would that we could look within and find peace with our own internal battles.. When we do, so too will the external world find its own peace.. Love and Blessings my friend..
