Dwelling in kindness, a monk
with faith in the Awakened One’s teaching,
would attain the good state,
the peaceful state:
stilling-of-fabrications ease.

Monk, bail out this boat.
It will take you lightly when bailed.
Having cut through passion, aversion,
you go from there to Unbinding.

-Dhammapada, 25, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
