An Account of the Buddha – Part III (from The Hallowed Book of Man)


The Buddha, our High Lord, was grieved at the ills of life. He saw the vanity of worldly happiness, and sought salvation in the one thing that will not fade or perish, but will abide forever and ever. You who long for life, know that immortality is hidden intransiency. You who wish for happiness without the sting of regret, lead a life of righteousness. You who yearn for riches, receive; receive treasures that are eternal. Truth is wealth, and a life of truth is happiness. All compounds will be dissolved again, but the verities which determine all combination and separations as laws of Nature, endure for ever and ever.
