Thought ⧸ Verse 40

Knowing that this body is (fragile) like a jar, and making this thought firm like a fortress, one should attack Mara (the tempter) with the weapon of knowledge, one should watch him when conquered, and should never rest.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
