Virtues and benevolence
are the foundations of our inherent nature.
The Law of Cause and Effect
is the law of the Universe.
When doing virtuous deeds,
a hundred auspiciousness appear;
When doing unwholesome deeds,
a hundred calamities befall.
A family that does many wholesome deeds
will have many blessings to spare;
A family that does many unwholesome deeds
will undergo plenty of misfortunes.
The Law of Cause and Effect brings both
good and bad fortune as well as
disaster and happiness;
Thus, our virtues and benevolence
depend upon the values of our experiences.
