Itivuttaka: The Buddha’s Sayings

The Section of the Ones

2. Hate

This was said by the Lord…

“… Hate is that one thing, bhikkhus. Abandon that and I guarantee you non-returning.”

Beings corrupted by hate
Go to rebirth in a bad bourn.
But having rightly understood hate,
Those with insight abandon it.
By abandoning it they never come
Back to this world again.
