The Way ⧸ Verse 283

Cut down the whole forest (of lust), not a tree only! Danger comes out of the forest (of lust). When you have cut down both the forest (of lust) and its undergrowth, then, Bhikshus, you will be rid of the forest and free!
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
