Punishment ⧸ Verse 144

Like a good horse stirred at a touch of the whip, be diligent and get alarmed by endless round of rebirths (i. e., samsara). By faith, morality, effort, concentration, discernment of the Dhamma, be endowed with knowledge and practice of morality, and with mindfulness, leave this immeasurable dukkha (of samsara) behind.
