This precept means that we should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. They things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honor heroes after they've died. They're like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honor the pharaohs. Only instead of being made out of stone, they're made out of the memories people have of you. That's why your deeds are like your monuments. Built with memories instead of with stone.
I agree with Auggie - Your deeds are your monuments, to me means that people don't remember you for what you say or look like, they remember you for the things you do.
I also think that your deeds are your monuments means that you don't have to be good at everything, just find out one thing you are good at and continue exploring! Just do one thing at the time, your deeds are your monuments. Don't try to do stuff that will impress your friends or family, do what you think they will remember you for!
Your deeds are the things that you do. Monuments means like something important like treasure or something like that. Your deeds are your monuments means that whatever you do people will be affected by it. So if you do good deeds then people stay happy whereas if you do some bad deeds people will seem upset.
I think Dev is right. People will stay happy if you do good deeds.
Abe, your comment needs to be more in depth than this. You were asked to write a paragraph.
Every good deed you do and every bad deed you do is based on the things you do in your time in this world and when your time is over you will say you did not do the bad deeds ,you would say that you did all the good deeds but god sees us when we do a bad deed.Whatever really good deed you do for example what Nelson Mandela did people looked up at him they see him as a monument to them.
The precept"your deeds are your monuments"means that you're remembered for the things you do not what you look like.Also you can get a big monument built for you but you did not many good deeds so you don't really have a monument at all and that monument could stand in the busiest part of town and still knowone will remember you.You don't need a monument at all to be remembered ,you are remembered in the things you do.
Your deeds are your monuments mens that you will be remembered for what you do not how you look like (Small fetures)
If you stop slavery for example then you will be known for stopping slavery
not for if you had a good moustache or a beard
Your deeds are your monuments mean's The good thing I do make me achieve something eg If there is a blind man crossing the road and I help him I achieve something by helping somebody. So I am building in by achievements.
If you do a good deed then people will be happy. Not only they are happy you are happy too. A monument is a masterpiece
so this will be your treasure if you do deeds.
So if you do this a lot then people will like you
and this will be your mega treasure
I think that when you are a hero and you have saved many people it is like a deed and when you die you are not forgotten and they will have memories of you. Like as Auggie has said that when pyramaids have been made they are there to honour the pharoughs that have died just like the super heroes and are there to honor the person who did the deed and finished the mounument.like anouther person takes what that person has been doing and keeps on doing it witch greats a generation of honour.
Your stuff family and friends will stay with you I wrote this because the needs part really stuck up at me that was a big part of the precept and monument to i thought if i brought those together i could say about what it means and it will be easier.
Your deeds are your good actions
your monuments are what people remember even when your not there.
To me it means that your deeds are your rewards. For example your deeds make your friends. Your deeds are your moments to be a star and your deeds are your super heroes that save you from hard times. Your deeds are your good actions and they are what people remember.
Your deeds are your monuments mea
means what you do in life is what people remember you by. If you are helpful and kind everyone remembers you as being a helpful and kind person but if you are mean, naughty and unkind people will always refer to you as a mean and unkind person. Also it is about what I did and what I am most proud off because when I am proud of something I remember it. So this becomes my monument. An example is when my roommate in Bagamoyo wasn't feeling good I read to her to make her sleep. It made her relaxed and this is an example because i'm proud of it- my monument.
Your deeds are your monuments
what this means to me is when i do good things then people will apreshiate and praise about me to others but when i do bad things it like breaking the monument and not building a new one.
like when i help my mum my mum apreshiate and praise me to my dad. so we have to do good things so others can prase us.
I think your deeds are your monuments I fell like that means the way that you do somethimg the other person will do it the same way for example the way that you treat some one thy will treat you back the same way if you are rude to a person they will be rude back thats what I think your deeds and monuments means
Your deeds and monuments I think means some thing that you you realy like to do like georgie realy likes zombie tag and monuments I think is the way you look at something oro the way you think of something
your deed are your monuments
I think it ment if we do good or fabulous job then we get rewarded.
deeds are reward and monument are what they think about me .
your deeds are your monument that meant. for example you can't judge a fish by it's look erey one is unique and people have different good part and bad part
It means to me that people remember you for what you did not for what you said or look like.
everyone does good things and everyone does bad things if you do good things people will do good things back to you for example say i go and help my friend if he is hurt maybe the next day he will do good to me but some people do not.
once you do something bad people do bad to you if you say sorry it does not always help with what they are feeling many people do bad things sometimes on purpose and sometimes by mistake but what ever you do someone will always come back at you some day even if its not the next one
your deeds are your monuments
monuments means some thing important and fragil like treasure deeds means something good you do for a person and you and huever you did the good deed to will be happy
everything you do goes in to your life history because thats what you will be remembered by not your coolness or for how you look like many people are judged on wether they are a boy or a girl but it does not matter what you look like its just what you do that effects your life
deeds and monuments is maybe you might not look great and people might not like you but your a nice person and that caries on youre history of youre life
what ever you do people will be affected by it
Your deeds are your monuments
The good things you do are remembered like monuments and the bad things you do are like the monuments crumbling down.The good deeds stand forever and are remembered. Like if you are kind and make a difference you will be remembered as they stand still,sometimes if you do something really bad on purpose some of your monuments (good things you do) will crumble (be forgotten).
In the conclusion I have rilles that that the monuments you do are actually the deeds that you do.
I think that your deeds are your monuments means that you cant be good at everything same people are good at things that you are not good at. For example i am good at gymnastics but miles is not that good at gymnastics but miles is beater at math then me. so if you are good at one thing stick to it and just kip on doing what you are good at . Don't tray to impress your friend bay doing something they can do. do something you think they are gong to remember in there hurt.
