Daily Dharma
I like this one for the final line -- you know those dirty homeless folks, the people you turn your eye from? They are beings as much as you yourself.

What Good Is It?

What good is meditating on patience if you will not tolerate insult? What use are sacrifices If you do not overcome attachment and revulsion? What good is giving alms If you do not root out selfishness? What good is governing a great monastery if you do not regard all beings as your beloved parents?

--from The Life of Milarepa, trans. by Lobsang P. Lhalunga
from Everyday Mind, edited by Jean Smith, a Tricycle book

No profanes - sacred
