Abstract"There is no ornament like virtue, no misery like worry, no protection like patience, and no friend equal to

generosity." In "The Staff of Wisdom," the Indian Mahayana master Nagarjuna offers the practical wisdom of the Dharma in

witty, thought-provoking, and uplifting verses that apply to all types of life situations.
Expressing universal truths that remind us of basic human values, Tibetan scholar Sakya Pandita's "Treasury" gives profound

advice for daily life in truly elegant sayings that remain readily in the mind.
Elegant Sayings is a fine, brief introduction to the Buddhist way of life that encourages the reader to explore the wealth

of the Dharma.
From "A Precious Treasury of Elegant Sayings," by Sakya Pandit: Those who have become the slaves of the world run after

riches at the price of destruction. The wise man, though he obtains wealth, is contented to give it to others. If you would

fight an enemy who harms you, then subdue your passions. Thus, you shall be perfectly free from harm; for it is on account

of your passions that from the beginning you have been wandering in the world. If you wish to destroy your enemies, you

never shall find the end of killing. But if you can subdue your own desire, every enemy is at once destroyed. If you are

angry with powerful and malicious men, you will only hurt yourself. What reason is there to be angry with the virtuous and

the wise?
