Judgment (poem)

He who earnestly treads the path
Sees no error in the world.
When we find fault with others,
Who is in the wrong but us?
When others are in the wrong,
We overlook, and even condone it.
For it is wrong to condemn it!
By removing the habit of fault-finding
We cut off a source of defilements.
When only hate or love disturbs our mind,
Nightmares and daydreams will plague us.

— after Sutra of Hui-Neng
