An Indian Civilizational Perspective

A brahmin

Here in the world
he takes nothing not-given
–long, short,
large, small,
attractive, not:
he’s what I call
a brahmin.

His longing for this
& for the next world
can’t be found;
free from longing, unshackled:
he’s what I call a brahmin.

-Dhammapada, 26, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
