VERSES OF THE SHARED MORALITY OF THE SEVEN BUDDHAS
Translated into Chinese by Gautama Samghadeva (Years unknown, Jin Dynasty)
English translation: You Zai

Do no evil,
Practice all wholesome deeds,
Purify one's own mind;
This is the teaching of all Buddhas.

── from Ekottara Agama (Gradual Discourses of the Buddha)


PRACTICING THE PRECEPTS
Translated into Chinese by Buddhayasas (Years unknown, Eastern Jin Dynasty)
English translation: You Zai

Neither slander nor be jealous,
One shall abide by the precepts.
Be content with our diet,
enjoy one’s leisurely times.
A concentrated mind will take joy
in diligent practices,
This is the teaching of the Buddhas.

── from Dharmaguptaka Vinaya (Four-Part Vinaya)
