The Mendicant ⧸ Verse 371

Meditate, O Bhikshu, and be not heedless! Do not direct thy thought to what gives pleasure that thou mayest not for thy heedlessness have to swallow the iron ball (in hell), and that thou mayest not cry out when burning, `This is pain.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
