Contemplation: An End to Hatred

After reviewing the guidelines for the practice, take the following as your contemplation:

"He abused me, he struck me, he overpowered me, he robbed me." Those who do not harbor such thoughts still their hatred.

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world. By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal.

Dhammapada, trans. Bikkhu Bodhi
