The Effort Must Be Made By You

A person should never forget the following advice, found in the Dhammapada, given by the Buddha: "All effort must be made by you; Buddhas only show the way. Follow this path and practice meditation; go beyond the power of Mara*."

*Please remember, Mara is not a personage. Mara is your own greed, anger, ignorance, desire, hatred, and delusion. Mara is ego.
