What needs to be done
with firm persistence,
what needs to be done
by someone who hopes for Awakening,
    that I will do.
    I will not fail.
See: persistence and striving!

You show me the path:
    the straight,
    the plunge into Deathlessness.
I, through sagacity,
will reach it, know it,
as the stream of the Ganges,
    the sea.
