Part Two Qualities of a Ruler: Wisdom


From wisdom one has a mind unshakable,
Non-reliance on others, firmness,
And is not deceived. Therefore,
O King, be intent on wisdom. (verse 138)

Wisdom and practice always grow
For one who keeps company
With those who speak advisedly,
Who are pure, and who have unstained wisdom and compassion. (verse 139)

Nagarjuna, Precious Garland, translated by Jeffrey Hopkins
