Thirst ⧸ Verse 335

In this world, sorrow grows in one who is overwhelmed by this vile craving that clings to the senses, just as well-watered birana grass grows luxuriantly.
English translation by Daw Mya Tin. Edited by Editorial Committee, Burma Tipitaka Association Rangoon, Burma, 1986. For free distribution only, as a gift of dhamma.
