GAUTAMA BUDDHA, The Gospel of Buddha

He that hath sinned
In body, word, or thought,

This fool after the dissolution of the body,
Shall go to perdition.

Unto a lack of rain.

With no evil thought toward any single creature,
And in so doing becometh proper,
And if he have compassion in his soul
Toward all living beings--this noble one
Doth acquire abundant Virtue.
