1-2

Phenomena are preceded by the heart,
ruled by the heart,
made of the heart.
If you speak or act
with a corrupted heart,
then suffering follows you —
as the wheel of the cart,
the track of the ox
that pulls it.

Phenomena are preceded by the heart,
ruled by the heart,
made of the heart.
If you speak or act
with a calm, bright heart,
then happiness follows you,
like a shadow
that never leaves.

3-6

'He insulted me,
hit me,
beat me,
robbed me'
— for those who brood on this,
hostility isn't stilled.

'He insulted me,
hit me,
beat me,
robbed me' —
for those who don't brood on this,
hostility is stilled.

Hostilities aren't stilled
through hostility,
regardless.
Hostilities are stilled
through non-hostility:
this, an unending truth.

Unlike those who don't realize
that we're here on the verge
of perishing,
those who do:
their quarrels are stilled.

Dhammapada


So don't join the Petas.

So oppose the Peta and share knowledge, which leads to wisdom and understanding.

Without basic knowledge,
wisdom is hard to gain,
Fallen into the state of peta,
even most refined food (knowlegde),
has no access,
to your heart.

Starving, the Peta is caught,
by his desire to gain,
What ever offered,
What ever eaten
caused additional pain.

What ever refined food,
in this precious existence,
in the human world,
Don't wast it to still
low desires,
to expand desires of becoming,
and destroy.

Use it as a means,
as foundation,
to fulfill the holy life.

Putting desire an death
to an end.

Use this door to leave peta-hood, yet. Leave it for ever behind.

Duggata Sutta: Fallen on Hard Times kirjoitti:
- Namo tassa bhagavato arahato sammā-sambuddhassa -

At Savatthi. There the Blessed One said: "From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating & wandering on. When you see someone who has fallen on hard times, overwhelmed with hard times, you should conclude: 'We, too, have experienced just this sort of thing in the course of that long, long time.'

"Why is that? From an inconstruable beginning comes transmigration. A beginning point is not evident, though beings hindered by ignorance and fettered by craving are transmigrating & wandering on. Long have you thus experienced stress, experienced pain, experienced loss, swelling the cemeteries — enough to become disenchanted with all fabricated things, enough to become dispassionate, enough to be released."

As written. Its "just" the own choice leaded by Saddha, nothing else. Nobody can help if the conditions are not set yet. The door is open all the time. Even plenty of food is served.
