The Wisdom of Sayadaw U Pandita

Before hurling insults and accusations at another, one should consider one's own state of mind and circumstances. The tendency to lash out, defame, and belittle is an aspect of conceit. [It can be illustrated] with the image of a person enraged, taking up a handful of excrement to fling at his opponent. This person befouls himself even before the opponent. So, if there are matters on which we disagree, please let us all try to exercise patience and forgiveness in the spirit of the good-hearted.
