Here one joys, one joys hereafter,
in both ways does the merit-maker joy;
one joys and one rejoices,
one's own pure karmas seeing.

Why this laughter, why this joy,
when it’s ever blazing?
Shrouded all about in gloom
won’t you look for the light?

Here one burns, one burns hereafter,
in both ways does the evil-doer burn;
evil I've done, remorsefully one burns,
and more one burns passed to realms of woe.

If one holds oneself as dear,
protected, one protects oneself.
One who’s wise should be aware
through all the watches three.

Here one's glad, one's glad hereafter,
in both ways is the merit-maker glad;
'Merit I've made', serenely one is glad,
and more one's glad passed to blissful states.

Do not follow base desires,
nor live with heedlessness,
do not follow wrong beliefs
to grow in worldly ways.

Though many sacred texts he chants
the heedless man's no practiser,
as cowherd counting other's kine
in samanaship he has no share.

That Buddha traceless of infinite range
whose victory none may e’er undo,
whose vanquished follow to no world,
then by which track will you trace him?

Though few of the sacred texts he chant
in Dharma does his practice run,
clear of delusion, lust and hate,
wisdom perfected, with heart well-freed.

We the unhating live
happily midst the haters,
among the hating humans
from hatred dwell we free.

One makes an effort where none’s due
with nothing done where effort’s due,
one grasps the dear, gives up the Quest
envying those who exert themselves.

Anger and pride should one forsake,
all fetters cast aside,
dukkha’s none where no desire,
no binding to body or mind.

Now a withered leaf are you
and now Death’s men draw near,
now you stand at the parting gates
but waybread you have none.

Whoever judges hastily
does Dharma not uphold,
a wise one should investigate
truth and untruth both.

Heedfulness is the Deathless path,
heedlessness, the path to death.
Those who are heedful do not die,
heedless are like the dead.

The wise then, recognizing this
as the distinction of heedfulness,
pleased with the spheres of Nobles Ones,
in heedfulness rejoice.

Of paths the Eight-fold is the best,
of truths the statement four,
the passionless of teachings best,
of humankind the Seer.

If one should see great happiness
in giving up small happiness
one wise the lesser would renounce
the greater full-discerning.

They meditate persistently,
constantly they firmly strive,
the steadfast to Nirvana reach,
the Unexcelled Secure from bonds.

With one denying truth there goes to hell
that one who having done says ‘I did not’.
Both of them are making karmas base
are equal after death.
