These teachings are like a raft

.

.
These teachings are like a raft, 
to be abandoned once you have crossed the flood. 
.
Since you should abandon even good states of mind generated by these teachings,
 How much more so should you abandon bad states of mind! 
.
Conquer the angry man by love.
 Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness. 
Conquer the miser with generosity.
 Conquer the liar with truth.
