  1. Dhammapada, "The fool"

    73. The fool seeks undeserved reputation, precedence among monks, authority over monasteries, and honor among householders.

    74. "Let both laymen and monks think that it was done by me. In every work, great and small, let them follow me" — such is the ambition of the fool; thus his desire and pride increase.

    75. One is the quest for worldly gain, and quite another is the path to Nibbana. Clearly understanding this, let not the monk, the disciple of the Buddha, be carried away by worldly acclaim, but develop detachment instead.

    Be mindful friends, be mindful!
