A man long absent...

Daily Buddhist Wisdom
A man long absent comes home safe from afar. His kin, his friends, his companions, delight in his return. In just the same way, when you've done good & gone from this world to the world beyond, your good deeds receive you-- as kin, someone dear come home.
- Dhammapada, 16, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
