[1][pts][nymo] "These are five ways
of subduing hatred by which,
when hatred arises in a monk,
he should wipe it out completely.
Which five?

"When one gives birth
to hatred for an individual,
one should develop good will
for that individual.

Thus the hatred for that individual
should be subdued.

"When one gives birth
to hatred for an individual,
one should develop compassion
for that individual

Thus the hatred for that individual
should be subdued.

"When one gives birth
to hatred for an individual,
one should develop equanimity
toward that individual

Thus the hatred for that individual
should be subdued.

"When one gives birth
to hatred for an individual,
one should pay him no mind
and pay him no attention

Thus the hatred for that individual
should be subdued.

When one gives birth
to hatred for an individual,
one should direct one's thoughts
to the fact
of his being the product of his kamma:

'This venerable one
is the doer of his kamma,
heir of his kamma,
born of his kamma,
related by his kamma,
and is dependent on his kamma.

Whatever kamma he does,
for good or for evil,
to that will he fall heir.'

Thus the hatred for that individual
should be subdued.

"These are five ways
of subduing hatred by which,
when hatred arises in a monk,
he should wipe it out completely."
