Punishment ⧸ Verse 144

Like a good horse, when touched with the whip,
you seek to overcome doubts and anxieties regarding the All,
with ardent, sincere effort.
Through faith, virtue, concentration and
through the discrimination of the Truth,
you will be joyous
with mindfulness based on wisdom and goodness,
you will be free from this considerable suffering.
