I ye wonder whether evil kharma can be neutralized or not,
The know that it is a neutralized desire for goodness.
But they who knowingly do evil acts,
Exchange a mouthful of food for infamy.
They who knowingly not whither they themselves are bound,
Yet presume to pose as guides for others.
Do injury to both themselves and others.
If pain and sorrow ye desire sincerely to avoid,
Avoid then. doing harm to others.
--W.Y. Evans-Wentz, Tibet's Great Yogi Milarepa
