Flowers ⧸ Verse 45

The Ariya Sekha* shall examine this earth (i. e., the body), the world of Yama (i. e., the four Apayas) and the world of man together with the world of devas. The Ariya Sekha shall examine the well-taught Path of Virtue (Dhammapada) as an expert florist picks and chooses flowers.
