Gautama Buddha on Paying Homage

He who pays homage to those who are worthy of homage,
be they the Enlightened Ones or Their Disciples —

those who have overcome the host of evil
and crossed beyond the stream of sorrow —

he who pays homage to the Fearless and Peaceful Ones,
his merit cannot be measured by any.

— Gautama Buddha, Dhammapada, v. 195-196
