Listen, kinsmen, all of you,
as many as are assembled here.
I will teach you the Dhamma:
    Painful is birth,
    again and again.

Rouse yourselves.
    Go forth.
Apply yourselves
to the Awakened One's bidding.
Scatter the army of Death
as an elephant would
a shed made of reeds.

He who,
in this doctrine and discipline,
remains heedful,
abandoning birth,
    the wandering-on,
will put an end
to suffering and stress.
