“Happiness or sorrow — whatever befalls you, walk on, untouched, unattached.”
This is from Byrom’s translation of the Dhammapada.
The verse in question is verse 83 of the Dhammapada.
‘Sabbattha ve sappurisā cajanti na kāmakāmā lapayanti santo
Sukhena phuṭṭhā atha vā dukhena noccāvacaṃ paṇḍitā dassayanti.’
those of integrity
They, the good,
don’t chatter in hopes
of favor or gains.
now by pleasure,
the wise give no sign
But since Byrom’s words bear little or no relation to the original I have no hesitation in regarding it as a Fake Buddha Quote.
