do not live heedlessly;
do not have false views;
do not value worldly things.
In this way one can get rid of suffering.
Dhammapada XIII 167
* The wise live a life of good and and righteousness based on : No killing; No stealing; No sexual misconduct; No lying; No intoxicants.
* A life of heedlessness, unmindfulness will inevitably lead one to more pain, sorrow and suffering.
* Living a life of delusion ... feeding and satisfying the 'Ego', the 'self', 'I' and the 'Mine' is the root cause of suffering. Realization of Anatta or 'Non-self' leads one to happiness, peace and liberation.
* Worldly things are impermanent and have no inherent value. Attaching and clinging to them causes one to spin in the wheel of suffering life.
